A few pictures of a GTX 280 with the Silenx cooler and the newly painted 100x25mm fans

We've started on Slaymate's airbrushed mural. the image will be on the right side panel and lower right portion of the front bezel. Some of you may recognize this image from the FRIGHT NIGHT movie poster.. We're adding a twist tho, below the demonic clouds will be a stair case to the depths of h e l l f i r e! Mwhahahaa

that looks really amazing

also, wouldn't painting the fans throw the fan blades off balance? maybe increase noise level?
or maybe I am just thinking too much :\

I painted the fans slowly while they were spinning so the paint would apply evenly

I don't even bother spinning them and I've never had a problem, just many thin, even layers.

If they are ball-bearing they should be fine because of pre-loading. They can even be installed at an angle if you need to.
