Should I spray paint my Noctua fans? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the reply guys. Unfortunately, there is no way to separate the blades from the base of the fans on my Noctuas. I am still unsure whether to paint them or keep them the way they are.

Noctua fans are an aesthetic and functional master work. I don't own one, nor have I ever, but I can still say that. Which, if you think about it, is saying something. wink.gif The fact that they are tan, reddish in color? That they seem more inclined to home interior decorating (regarding colors)? should not eclipse the previous statement. And so no. You definitely should NOT paint your Noctua fans. They were born okay the first time ...

To hell with caution. A man has to do what a man has to do. In this, it is what I want to do lol.
I used masking tape to completely cover the surface of the base of the fan and spray painted the blades a flat black color. I will wait until it dries and do the same thing for the base in white color.
I will update with pics of the painted fan once completed.

Not as clean of a job as I was hoping for but acceptable. Masking the blades and the body to paint the fan is an exhausting process that does not guarantee success. I would never fo it again unless the blades could be separated from the body. Too much time and effort for adequate results makes the job not worth it.
