Interesting idea... although I'll probably wait in the small event I need to return it XD. Plus I don't have any paint for it any recommendations on what type?
Looks likes someone's gonna be busy ^v^
I also plan on adding accent lighting (also red lol), maybe getting (or making some rads) my H50 experience will keep me from water cooling again for a while though. Also going to be getting some more 120mm fans, and 140mm fans. And probably going to sleeve all said fans and give them molex plugs although for some I'll add a fan controller plug. Right now I need more fan to molex adapters.
Hmmm sorry bout your experience with the H50. I don't know all the specifics but for the most part people really like their experience with it.
I've had mine for nearly a year now(9mos., geez time really flies when you're old) and it keeps my CPU to a really low temp. ~40c constant, even under load.
Paint-wise I use Rust-o-leum advanced formula in Satin black which matches the exterior color beautifully. Others use Krylon, though I'm not sure of the shade and overall outcome. Go ahead and take the plunge though, cause I doubt that you'll be returning it. Only problem I had with mine was a faulty HDD read LED in the I/O that with a little cussing involved had them send me a new top plate and I/O configuration. I was a bit miffed they just didn't send me the PCB portion, but after sleeving mine I figured out why. They don't have a uniform standard from one PCB to the next. Oh the PCB is the same but the connections can be different. Sometimes there is a 6 pin standard and sometimes there are 4 pin standards where the cables are concerned.
Well anyway it's just possible that your experience was a once in one thousand issue. You shouldn't let that stop you from water cooling, regardless of which kind of water you do. If you can do the work yourself and can afford a kit, then that's what I would do. I've always been of the mind that I cannot be mad at anyone if it's something I put together myself.
@Kahbrohn... Make sure to have a crimping tool and pins on hand for that JiC moment. Trust me you don't ever want to be in that moment without one.
