    What do you mean by what kind? Color, or actual type of paint? If you're talking about color, it depends on the color scheme you're going with for your case mod.

    well gloss enamel is the best as its not sandy like flat paint is... but for a case all your paint is going to be enamel paint... you dont want to use a paint and brush (it will look bad if you do).. so just use spray paint... or powder coat it (at the cost of expense)

    I painted my old case and am also planning on paint my new case. I would recomend an enamel vs a lacquer. Also clean and prime everything very well.

    It's like a Ricer, the looks are literally just as important as the power. If it's not it's considered a "sleeper" with cars. You just can't pull off a sleeper with PC's, if it doesn't look good but runs good, that can mean anything from you're ignorant and bought it pre-built for $4000, or you're a nerd that renders 3d things, or you're just a lazy gamer, or you don't have a passion for computers. See? Without mods you're any of those, but with mods you're either an ignorant computer builder that loves looks and nothing else, or you're a dedicated enthusiast that loves his works and shows it with how his case looks.

    Sleepers just mean you're lazy or you don't want to brag, or you're a hussler. How are you gonna hussle with a computer? Ricers can mean exactly what a modded computer means.

    See the difference? You can't pull off an ugly computer like you can a car, it just shows your passion for the hobby and it's even more important with computers.
