Here she is in all her glory! Modded the grill by spray painting it with a semi-gloss white paint. I think it came out great!

Okay now I'm working on painting the outside plastic white on all of my AF120/140 Fans. I think it will be a nice tough till I can get some different fans. I may just keep the AF140s for they are doing a good job moving air and are quiet. Then I'll replace the three 120 fans I have with Vardar EK-120ERs (Black) and painting the outsides white or get white fans and painting the outside Black... Still to be determined. I'll post pictures once I'm done with the fan mod. I refuse to paint the fins because it will degrade the fans and its purpose

Decided to paint my heatsinks.

Just ordered some double sided adhesive thermal tape to finish it off, which will give me time to finish my test painting of my fans. The 140mm fans didn't go so well but the 120mms are coming along very nicely.

Looking good! I painted my grills on my old Storm Trooper a nie grey to offset the black. The change is nice! Keep up the good work!

Yes sir! It would make a nice touch. Top fans on rad, blowing in or out?

That is one very impressive build! It looks awesome! I am saving up to get three PWM rad fans for the front and three new 140 fans for the bottom and back. I'll be throwing in a 340 rad and a block for my GPU as well down the road.

Top fans are blowing out in a pull config and when I get my front rad the fans will be blowing in, in a pull config as well. I just think it makes for easier clean up of the radiator having them in pull.
