I like the two tone cuz thats how i picture a storm trooper but if your going to paint the cooler I'd say sand it down a little to help the coats stick a little better, put a coat of primer on to help the paint stick and to keep the paint from falling off. then put on some coats of paint.
Try things out, mess around with the paint. you can always repaint it and paint is cheap!

hope this helps

edit: you can always buy heat resistant paint at homedepot if you need too, but normal spray should work

xd.... take a look at oznium.com

They sell cold cathodes for automotive. Here is a link to some purple cathodes.

http://www.oznium.com/cathode-kit

it all comes with 2 cathodes and a "transformer"(i forget what the correct name for them is right now...having a brain fart)

But the cathodes will connect to the "transformers" that come with computer specific cathodes as well. that way you connect them to the psu via. 4-pin molex.


And you should be able to get the computer specific transformers at any computer store(microcenter, frys, etc.)

I love this white case and probably planning to buy this when I have money but I have spent so much time on my modded computer already so I think I'll just stick with it.
