[GUIDE] Paint Your Fans UV - Page 7

post #61 of 96
Excellent guide. Well written with step by step instructions and informative photos. Never knew about all the little rings and things on those fans. Always painted and cleaned the hard way...no more!

Great guide!

No brand is specific, I got this can at my local True Value Hardware store. Any paint that is marked fluorescent will glow under a UV lamp. Experiment with what is available in your area to find the best one.

Thanks for the guide, It was well explained and love the large close up pics I had a question. If anyone cares to toss in their 2cents please feel free. I have the ugliest thermalright Silver Arrow TY-140 Heatsink fans, I was wondering if it's also possible to "safely" paint the base? since it's got that ugly greenish pale vomit like color was going for the black base, red fan look. to match the M4E mobo. Thanks in advance.

If you were careful, and masked the pieces off you didn't want paint to get on with some tape, you could do it. Just take your time and be careful.

Great guide! (+rep)

Will definitely help me if I get fans that perform well but look like crap for my next rig.
Can repaint them to look much better

Also glowing tools FTW

Keep up the good work!
