post #11 of 30
Just pop down your local DIY store and pick up any ones TBH...

Although, consider this:

http://www.misterart.com/g8420/Krylo...&WT.mc_id=8420



Iridescent would be amazing - I would love to do it but its $15 a can over here, over there it's like $5! You used to be able to pick up a whole set (can of primer, base and top coat) for $5 on Amazon, seriously check it out

And by more fan holes I think he means in the grills themselves

I'd recommend you use a primer, the paints that don't require it are harder to sand and often you don't get as nice of a finish.

Also if you could take a pic of the front, back & profile. It might be easier for people to come up with idears.

"Krylon Fusion for Plastic" is OK on aluminum, correct? It'd be for the interior.

Back when I was planning on doing a Centurion case mod I was thinking about that paint and Rustoleum (sp?), but I wasn't sure if the Krylon was OK on aluminum.

Please read the first post.

1) If you don't like the case in the first place to post a helpful post, don't post.
2) Don't make useless posts.
3) Show me a good looking case that doesn't "need modding" for $20 shipped.

Windows 2000 is hell on a P3 (No photoshop, nothing but .bmp support) so any pictures that you mentioned should be able to find in this review....:

Damn. I was joking. I just thought I'd make a good entrance. Now, let's get serious:

Paint is always a good way to make a statement, and to personalize an item. I would paint in inside black so LEDs and UV-Reactive items will show up bright. I would also spend money (and time) on Cable Management, a black sleeving kit and some smart thinking could make a project great. Secondly, I agree with your ideas on cooling; 2 bottom intakes (cool air) and a top exhaust (heat rises).

Since you are going to paint in outside black I would recommend painting all of it black, this way the lights will show up better. More Red, Green, or Blue lights would be a good contrast. Some LEDs that shine against the case look nice; kind of like the one next to microphone jack and USB ports.

Namrac: I'm helpful... Sometimes...

I agree with you on the colors and the LEDs, a front intake might be hard, though. Unless... He get's a Scythe Fan that takes up 3 5.25" Bay Drives.

Linkerage

Good Luck!

You can't prove this happened. Muahahaha

Primer + 2 coats of flat black on the interior, top blow hole, hole up front (if there's room) and see if Aerocool makes a red LED Xtreme Turbine fan and put it there.
