My facts are straight. There is a reason why manufactures do NOT paint them and leave them plain copper or aluminum. If your temps are lower its not because you painted it... lol... They will rise in time

In all fairness you havent said any facts you only said I destroyed IT its not a fact its just your opinion. and btw I painted it to look better and to match my case not for lower temps they just came after I did paint it so pfft and so what if my temps go higher in time, Im going to be upgrading to i7 in march when the new asus rampage III extreme mobo is released.

Thanks for the kind words :) means alot as It took me a while to get every panel of the case just right.

lol it is funny about the opposites of our ideas xD

This case is huge really worth the extra money and with a great idea you really can make it looks 100 times better than it stock.

good luck on your desision

I like the way that came out sir. Usually when people try to two tone the Haf's they come out not so awesome. I can tell you lost springs cuz I just did a very similar  Haf project  my self (in one of my posts) and lost a couple springs and couldn't put all the drive bay clickers. XD

thanks for the kind words , Yeah lol I didn't lose any springs just when I put 1 of the drive bay clcikers in I put it in locked by accedent and it got stuck and unlocknig it didnt help so i had to use my pliers to get ti out and had to redo some paint work was a bummer now I have to sand it into shape and repaint or just leave it out atm its out.
