I'm not familiar with media blasting? And yes Im selling the case but I'm assuming shipping charges are not worth it.

Silica is a hard abrasive that often removes material from the object. I know from bike frames that weigh less after blasting with sand, crazy. Media blasting uses soft abrasives that reduces removal of material, an ex is soda, nut shells, etc.

Okay cool ya I got a bid on the HAF 932 and they wanted $75 just for sandblasting plus I have to de-rivet the case and all that fun stuff. So Im going to Fry's to look at cases in the short term. I still really like the HAF 932 but too much time and money invested in one case.

I have heard burning it off works best next to paint stripper. Sandblasting it off of thin sheet metal like what computer cases are made of will more likely do more damage to the metal then the paint. In my experience (talking to the powder coat guys at work and a friend that does small parts in his garage) and blasting powder coat off requires a lot of work to get if off.

Ive heard of that too but i would not trust my case because I don not know what they did to it before they painted it. I think the HAF 932 is rolled steel or something like that but from what everyone is telling me its not worth the money to re paint the case. Then if I do go through with it and damage more of the structure of the frame its going to be upsetting with more time and effort already put into it. $75 just for sandblasting and then another 100-150$ for powder-coating. I think Im officially done because I fell in love with corsair's new cases. Thanks for the input!

Honestly id give it away for $30-40 bucks but shipping charges would not be worth it.

Kleanstrip and talstrip absolutely will remove powder coat

Get the kind you spread on with a brush. Leave it on for a whole day. Then apply again, wait an hour and then wire wheel the case

Use a cup wire wheel and a small point wheel
