A agree ditch the figures in there.
I just use them for the cpu for now but will be water cooling the vid card as soon as I find the block in stock again. It was kinda over kill but at the same time it has lowered the idle temp by 5c and load temps by 10c.

I used spray paint and yes you should take your case apart. Just drill out the rivets and when your done rivet it all back together. I use a 1/8 drill bit to remove the rivets.
Ill be having my case powder coated in the next week or so. The place ill be using will media blast the parts for $25.00 and then powder coat it for another $25.00. So for $50.00 you can have your case powder coated but be sure to have them go easy around the drive cages and the side door so you can get your drives back in and the door to close.

Must be loud with push/pull on every rad.
Id rather run 4-5c hotter and not hear anything from my PC.

The "best way" would be to take it all apart and have it blasted bare and then powdercoated. You can spray paint but the odds of the paint flaking and chipping are high.

Very true and the chances of you getting every thing back in your case with out scratching the heck out of every thing is very low as well. It took me a few try's to get every thing back in with out scratches and it never works. That's why I'll be getting the powder coating.

Its not very loud at all just under volt them and they are near silent. I really only crank the fan speed up when running bench marks. 99% of the time you cant even tell its on other than the lights.

You both need to learn how to use the multi-quote button LOL.

Its the one right next to the Quote button. Hit Multi-quote for the first (2nd 3rd...etc...) post then hit Quote on the last one you want to post.

OT: The configuration has less to do with the noise then what type/speed your fans are.

I totally agree with the above....i spent weeks painting and sanding only to have lots of chips and scratches....I also will be getting my case powder coated in the near future.
