I dont know if painting the heat spreaders would affect cooling, I guss it would depend on the paint you use. Also for that case you could do a little 80mm blowhole on the top, or a CD drive bay mod, ect.

For the cd drive bay mod I remember seeing some worklog of it, but I'll just explain the basics. take off a 5inch bay cover and cut out a stencil (your online handle, design, ect.) and then dremel it out of the drive bay cover. then mount a (red?) cold cathode or even a LED array behind the cd drive cover, and you should get a good looking mod.

lol of course red paint will drop your temps by 10 degrees!!!! lol j/k it looks cool i guess......

and when did he say anything about a CD drive bay??

as for the PSU.......yea just take it out.....tape up the slots so u dont get paint in it and spray it black.....with the stencil in a different color.....should look great....
post pics when u are done.

He did ask for other mods he could do

but now that i take a closer look @ that case I dont know if the CD drivers show from the outside at all. But it was a good looking mod on my home server
