Painting your Case Fans.

First of all remember that a motor is made up of copper windings that have a lacquer finish. So you cant hurt the windings by spraying them with lacquer. Its like being afraid to get ice in your water.


I have painted several fans with out any problems.

First old Greasy and dusty fans should be cleaned. You can skip this process if they are new and still have that new car smell to them.

First clean them with some Castrol Super clean and keep spraying them until all the dust and gunk falls into the sink. This is gross and sometimes may require a good hand washing afterwords.

Then get you a spray bottle of dawn and water.
one teaspoon of dawn the rest with water and rinse off the super clean.

Then go in the bathroom and use a Common Hair dryer and run the Hot Air from the Dryer into the fan blades making them spin hot and dry. When you are completely dry.. This is the fun part. You get to make your fan make really cool High velocity whirring sounds with the dryer and the centrifugal force throws all the water out of the fan very quickly. Don't burn yourself.
The Hairdryer can also be used between Paint sprays to make the time go by faster too.. That's my trade secret. I hate waiting.. I use the hairdryer on the paint and it drys it in like less than 10 seconds. NOTE. Don't cook the paint.. LOL.



Don't worry about taping anything off except your wiring. The LEDs will still shine as long as you don't intentionally spray heavy paint in the holes then you might have to use black and the lights will still glow through that.
Paint with short busts. First a really thin tack coat. Then a another short burst until you get it to the color you want. But take your time. Do it in 5 minute intervals in a air conditioned area with no dust.

It should take you 4 coats per side. On the last coat let it dry for 30 Min's. Then use a new set of newspaper or what ever you are using for a drop cloth and turn over to the other side and paint it the same way. just light coats. I have sprayed about 10 fans and never ruined one. It is easy and safe. Just take your time.

Ah yes, how could we have forgotten our own fearless leader’s killer fan painting job!!

Nice job, E ... you are tempting me to pull the trigger on the Noctuas and paint them a sort of black / grey combo ala EVGA. Krylon paint for plastic from Home Depot I hear works well, right? Hmmm ...

Awesome guide! Much appreciated. The reason I want to remove the blades is that I want to keep the housing/frame the way it is, and only paint the blade a different color. I have figured out how to remove the blades so now I'll apply your painting techniques when I spray. Thanks a lot!
