    Yeah, i would paint my case right now except wait... i dont have a window lol, i opted for the case with the twin 250mm fans instead of a case with a window... oh well, in a few weeks ill be buyin a new case cuz ill have $160-$180, thinking maybe a CM690 or twelve hundred, leaning towards twelve hundred cuz i plan on watercooling though.

    Hey mate, what type of Plasti-kote did you use? I was just looking on their website and they have ones for different surfaces and finishes etc.

    Thanks

    Thanks mate :)
    I've been thinking of getting one of these cases for a while and I thought I may as well paint it as soon as I get it, means I dont have to pull everything out again at a later date.
