HAF 912 Questions.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I was going to mod my HAF 912 to include a side window. I have 2 questions about it.

1.) Will painting the inside of the class make a big difference if I was planning on using Red LEDs?

2.) What thickness of plexiglass should I buy for this case? I'm buying it tonight so I would like to know.

3.) If I were to paint it, what type of paint would I have to use? I have this "Charcoal" type spray paint which is good at handling heat, I used it on my Xbox 360 Case mod with no issues (old paint job kind of chipped off due to heat my dad said, but idk if he's right).

If you guys have any other tips on modding this case, it would be really helpful. Thank you!

I vote for powdercoating it. Also, there is a windowed side panel available from the CM Store.

I'll think about that door, because my dad is offering to buy the plexiglass, plus I can put it into any shape that I would want if I did it myself. Sure, it's more of a hassle, but I would actually find it fun, so I don't see why not. And yeah I'll powdercoat it then. Thanks!
