i should have used matte paint for the interior
Yah I've seen some nice gloss paint applications (see flowtek) but matte, flat, and satin finishes are they way to go IMO. They are more forgiving when it comes to mistakes and if case lighting is used, non-gloss paints don't catch reflections.

yeah i am definitely planning on painting since i have never done it before and it always adds to a cases look. inside and out.
Matte on the inside is best, and anything works on the outside (personal preference pretty much).

Another very good spray painting guide.

Always remember to prime, and sand! DO NOT GO WITHOUT THOSE STEPS, BE PATIENT. Otherwise it will turn out shoddy.

For sanding, you just need to rough up the surface pretty much, no need to thoroughly sand the entire case, roughing up the surface is good enough in most if not all cases.

Also I believe after priming, you want to take some 1000 grit, and go over any bumps that formed for whatever reason. Use WetorDry sand paper, and just dab it in some water, make sure its not dripping too, and go over the bums, then wipe down with microfiber cloth.

No you should be fine. I've seen other members use that area to bind wires.

you could still cut out a negative of your design, sand down the side panel, prime it,give it a black base coat, pop the stencil down after the base coat dries, spray a charcoal metallic over it.. then clear that. You'd still have a simple looking case as the charcoal metallic would barely stand out at first....

hmmmm.... smart man

edit: btw trogalicious...i have done alot of searching around about the fan controllers...and for 4 fans (max ill have in the case) the sunbeam rheobus may be my best option, i could just deal with the lights, or find some way to cover them up/dim them somehow
