Is it possible to paint this case also? This case's color looked awesome to me:

The only other thing I am going to mention is that the motherboard tray in the Switch 810 is riveted in so you will have to drill out the rivets or do a extremely good job of masking off what you don't want to paint. Other than that it looks like a great project. thumb.gif

Question, does the white get dirty easily?

? By dirty... what exactly do you mean? Are you using it in a grassy field or...?

you get fingerprints more on the white and black than you will on the gunmetal but its not like it stains , I wouldnt change my white one for anything

I'm doing the same but my gt's are push pull, you should be fine.

Also, you really don't notice prints on the white IMO. It's not a darker shade than the case itself whereas the prints are a lighter color than the black, so they show up

I suggest using it as intake and getting dust filters for the intake fans. That way you get better CPU temps and the positive case pressure keeps dust out.

So I need dust filter for my top 3 fans...do most Switch owners recommend top fans as intake? Cooler over passing over the rads will make a significant difference?

Using a top radiator as intake will lower CPU temps and raise motherboard temps slightly. When switching my EX420 from intake to outtake, CPU temps rose 3-4C and motherboard temps dropped 3C with the same ambient.
