Whats the best way of fixing this? I was planning on waiting two days for the paint to fully solidify and then hit it with some 600 Grit sandpaper until its smoothed out. What do yo folks think?
Also this past weekend I made a skateboard/trolly for the phantom so I can easily slide it out from under my desk to replace parts etc, I will be posting pictures of it after I finish painting it.
I want to paint my fan casings, just the frame of the fan, I like the blades being white but I want the casing to be the same color as the blue trim. Anyone have a link to a guide for removing the blades from the 200MM fan and one of the NZXT 120MM blue LED fans?
Remove the sticker. Behind the sticker is a rubber or plastic circular bit. Get a knife/paperclip/something thin and flick it out. Careful, it's greasy in there. There's a washer and a rubber ring holding the fan in. Remove them. Note the order they go back in.
Fan will slip right out now. Cover up wiring (painters tape sounds good) and protect the motor. Paint!
The arrows are pointing at the circular part that the fan blades are attached to. Do NOT push the blades, and apply equal force to each side.
Be VERY careful - searching the thread will show you MANY people who have broken their fans.
The other method was posted by mybadomen and requires drilling a hole in the exact center of the fan housing in order to do the same method as the 200mm - I didn't do that one though, so I can't give any advice.
Sauce: I did it, here are my fans:
