Dilemma: Paint 932 vs Corsair 600T

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've come to a dilemma on my current upgrade project. I've got liquid cooling on the brain, and an upgrade of my vid card. I'm going with a white w/ black accents theme. I got my HAF 932 prior to the Black Edition of Advanced Edition being released, so the inside is bare metal. So here's my issue.

Do I:
1. Paint the interior of my 932, and do a window mod to the side panel? (I really want a full sized window.)

or
2. Order a new Corsair 600T Special Edition, and resell the 932 case?

I'm really torn here, as my 932 is a beautiful case, it's just not as classy inside as some of the current cases are. Upgrading to a HAF X isn't really a reasonable option, considering the similarities. I've never painted a case before, or done a window mod. But then I'd need to justify the cost of a new case with the wife, and find a buyer for the 932.

So, fellow OC'ers , what should I do?

The HAF932 can be hella sexy. I did the opposite of what you're probably trying to do, but here's a pic of my Old HAF932 in Black w/ White Accents and my H50 Mod which cooled the Motherboard as well.
