Default Thinking of purchasing this cube case. Qs

I was looking into buying this cube case from xoxide.com

http://www.xoxide.com/xulalcucu.html

I was wondering what kind of paint I should use to give it a glossy look. I want it dark glossy blue if possible.

Also will this case fit my standard atx good and my 1900xt? I dont think ventilation will be a problem as it has like 9 fan holes.

If you go to the manufacturer's site, you can get it in brushed aluminum, black powder coat, and red powder coat. Same price for that model in aluminum.

Here's a link:

MountainMods also make a few other cube cases. Cleck them out on the site.

There's not one.

They have black and red, as well as the bare aluminum. If you want blue, you'll have to do that yourself.

As for what paint, I have no idea. but you'll need metal primer, as that is bare aluminum you'd be painting. The good thing is that you can remove the fans and whatnot and just paint the whole thing at once.

Yeah that case is sick but you gotta have a pretty big desk to fit it, my desk is tiny. lol

As for the quietest fans, just get the fans with the best noise to airflow ratio and use a fan speed controller.
