I recently got a HAF 932 and it's in pretty good condition, however I wanted to revamp it with a 'lick of paint'.


I was thinking to go for the black and white look but not entirely sure yet.



What do you think? Anyone have any better ideas? Please vote and share your thoughts.

Thanks y'all thumb.gif

Nice, black and white is always a very sleek and sophisticated look. I don't think either should be glossy though. I vote for outside black and inside white (maybe not completely white though; some elements inside should be black, but mostly white).

Black and White is always really nice, but it is getting VERY common nowadays I have to say. Perhaps a really deep/dark red on the inside with a matte white or black on the outside. This will also match ure ROG board, even tho red/black is common not many people have the interiors different colours to the exteriors (other than black/white interiors). But yea, red/white could be pretty cool as I've only seen 1 or 2 people do it so far.

I don't really like the extravagant look and orange is a kinda 'in your face' colour. redface.gif

I won't be using my sig rig items in that case. It's for a different build smile.gif



I am leaning more towards the what Faraz said, inside white and outside black.

My vote also goes to white inside, black outside. I'd think a matte finish would be appropriate for a HAF.
That made me think about Charles latest creation:
www.murderbox.com/gallery.html

That case certainly isn't a 932, and the inner translucent white shelf panel would look odd in one!
But that color scheme does look good. I think it would be good in a 932, perhaps with a few of NZXT's black and white fans:
www.legitreviews.com/article/1702/1/
They're available from the 120mmm to 200mm sizes which would suit the 932.

And, of course, some good cable sleeving, in either black or white, perhaps a mixture of both.

Wow those are some real nice rigs you've linked me to, beautiful smile.gif
