So I guess it's fine to spray paint the case even without completely dismantling (de-riveting) it first? How about reaching the little nooks and crannies?

Well, I took the plunge and ordered an HAF!! It arrives tomorrow!!! I plan on painting the inside and have already gotten the paint and primer. Do I need to sand? I am not worried about the texture, I just want the paint the stay on for as long as I keep/use the case. If so, what grain is best to use?

Will be taking pictures and posting them asap.

I just ordered 2 more cold cathode lights to put into my case. Got 2 right now (well 3, only using 2) but they are orangish-red so I took them out of my case and installed them onto the bottom of it which makes it look pretty good (still pissed its orange).

painting the case is pretty easy, no you do not need a de riveter. you can get to all the places if your careful and not stupid. I used 3 cans of paint on mine, and 1 can on Prime. I'd do a good 3 coats of a Aluminum Primer first, then get a Krylon, or Rustoleum Black Paint. I don't like Glossy, I also used the Satin. and instead of doing like 3 coats of the main color, you guys should do like 5-7 extra light, thin coats. just lightly go over it, even missing a few spots, and then 7-10 mins later do another, and another. and do 3 really fast.. let dry a little while, and do 3 more fast coats, that's the best way to do it. and between the 2 final 3 coats. I used Wet/dry sandpaper to remove the orange peel look.

Painting the case is fun, and easy. and it looks just that much better after. Check my Sig for the worklog of my HAF 932 Water-Cooled, and painted black, with some wicked Cable management.

As far as the front lights. yes they are WAY to bright, everyone asks this question. I don't understand why everyone struggles with it. you can use some tape, you can color over it with a black marker and it will dim it, or just do what I did. Don't plug in the Power LED wires. and you don't have that problem. lol. there's no need for the stupid light, I never plug those in my mobo's.

Hello

I have a thermaltake eureka Case Is there a difference when I changed it to HAF 932?

Any suggestions?

Regards
post #428 of 23525
Omg my Haf 932 is Massive!

I cannot believe so big.. I actually dotn even have my new PC Parts inside of the case yet, since the PSU I bought is DOA. Why the HELL does PCP&C have such a Huge DOA Ratio for the 750 watt Silencer Quad's?

But Dammmm I cant wait to get my machine stuffed back into the HAF and see how well those fans keep her cool.

The best part about the HAF 932 fans are that they cool pretty well, but are very quiet.
You can replace them with multiple high end 120mm fans if you prefer, which some may choose.
The top can hold 2x 120mm fans, the door can hold 4x 120mm fans, and there are other places to fit fans (on the bottom by the PSU).
I would imagine that 4 San Ace fans on the side door would do a damned good job of cooling the GPU(s) and mobo chipset.
