post #1451 of 15191
I'm planning to mod a bit this phantom of mine:
- matte, classy white paint instead of plastic, almost-cheap-looking white
- white leds instead of blue leds for power, HDD and fan controller
- repaint a few yate loons to black/white

What type of paint would you recommend for case and fans?

Also, today I've installed a UV cold cathode on the bottom of the case and a couple of UV leds in the Supreme HF, needless to say it looks epic

Would love to post pics but my mobo is in RMA so it's quite scrambled in there

It LOOKS like it probably won't fit. Maybe someone on this thread can't help you directly but it's not like no opinions were given.

I could not use the dust filter either as it caused the fat to contact the CPU heat sink.
The D14 is only 2 mm taller so you might be able to get away with it.

How'd you get it apart? You have to remove the label and e-clip right?
For the fractal that's in the pic, yes. For the NZXT ones, they just pull off

Next project is replacing all LEDs with white and adding white cathodes. Going for a black and white theme.

Thanks, enjoy!



Whoa.. how did you do that?

Haha, it's just a simple prep/primer/paint job, I have experience with auto body work so I just took the case and sprayed it with my gun. Was a really simple job

Love how literally everything pops off this case, just unscrew the grills and other trim and you can get down to the base plastic

I'll have some better pictures once my lighting gets here

haha sounds so simple but it looks pretty difficult=p. What exactly is prep? i hate spraying with a can cause it can cause unevenness .

If you are skilled you can get an equally impressive paint job with a spray can as you can with a gun.. wouldn't recommend using a can to paint a car though
