Paint Fan Blades Reference GTX670 MSI OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I wonder if painting the spinning fan will improve something?
And if working on the interior of the card will imrprove the airflow?
Like the interior of the black plastic and the fan, painting it in blue like msi
did with their gtx580 lightning and this famous two flue fans that makes smoother air contact?

Uhm, painting the fan will do nothing for cooling or airflow.

As for painting the interior of the casing, I don't suggest it. That's one more thing to absorb and hold heat, and some paints can get toxic if heated.

If you're wanting to improve your cooling, your best bet is to either make a custom shell with a higher powered fan (more CFM), or go liquid.

Painting will not improve the airflow, or anything... it actually might make things worse.

As for MSI... they didn't paint the fans blue to make things smoother. The fans on the GTX580 Lightning Extreme changed from blue to white when they passed a certain temperature. Purely for aesthetics.
