Hi all,
I have a Corsair 280x case and I want to spray paint the PCI slot covers from black to white. I don't really have any experience painting so what kind of spray paint do I need? Do I need a primer?

Oh sorry, I didn't word it correctly. I meant could I just paint it over without using sandpaper.
The sandpaper is to rough up the surface, for better adhesion for the new paint.

What paint to use? Depends where you're buying it.
Automotive spray paint would work well.
Or Rustoleum.
(sandpaper section is probably next to the paint section, if you're actually going to the store)

200 grit.

Your computer case (or GPU in your other thread) doesn't get hot enough to worry about what spray paint you use. All my "standard" grade cans say max temp of 93C and I'm sure they're fine a bit hotter than that also.
