generally black dissapates heat quickly, but white paint reflects heat.

That's odd...I used the standard dremel cutting wheels for the aluminum on my case and they cut through it like butter....didn't shred one. Stupid question but you aren't overly forcing it are you? Also, if you overheat them and let them sit and cool down they can become brittle and shatter the next time you use it...but is more common with wood cutting wheels.

don't know dude..something is odd.

So if you have white exterior color and a black interior, you have the ultimate combination of a super cool case. I know that black absorbs heat. That's why people say if you have a black color car, it attracts the heat whereas lighter color such as white tends to reflect the heat.
