As long as you know how to spray and get an even coat it's no problem. But like I said if you don't know what you are doing you can screw up the balance spray painting. thumb.gif

K. It doesn't seem like too much of an issue to evenly coat something. My brain isn't THAT incompetent. Lol.

I'd use a spray plastic dye, not paint. Vinyl dye soaks into the plastic and the carrier all evaporates off so it only changes the color, it wouldn't leave a layer of stuff gunking up the blades. Actual paint could easily unbalance things enough to cause humming or buzzing noise; all it would take is a few milligrams of difference. Not to mention screwing up Noctua's subtle little airflow control notches and guides.

glad someone got a laugh out of it. looks don't mean a whole lot to me when it comes to my PC, but i understand others feel differently. what about a black sharpie, or one of those silver markers? i would test it on a small area first.

ok back to not looking at my brown motherboard, and brown fans. tongue.gif

i would love to join the club but first i need some help.
i live in Iceland and therefore Amazon.co.uk refuses to take my money.
i had planned to buy two 14cm intake fans, a 12cm for my cpu cooler, a 12cm in the back and a 8cm fan.

is there any place other than ebay and amazon where i can buy some noctuas (high price is ok since buying a 14cm corsair AF locally costs 34 US dollars)

Some of the danish sites may ship to Iceland

http://www.komplett.dk/k/search.aspx?q=Noctua
http://www.computersalg.dk/pages/search.aspx?query=Noctua

Juste note you have to be ripped off with danish prices so it may not be worth it

Have you tried contacting Noctua support and asking them where you can buy a cooler?.. If they can't suggest where you can buy maybe they will sell you one direct.
post #969 of 2925
thanks Shilka

coolerkit has me covered, they even ship to greenland and the Faroe Islands.

the price is steep tho and im gonna have to pay a 25% tax to get them through customs but im going for it.

Yes danish tax is very high

On the other hand it is the danish version of specialtech and its a very good site if something is broken they take care of it and not just ignore you
