  1. Hey!
    I am buying a new ATX case and since I have a new 19" LCD Monitor that is black. I am
    also rebuilding my Computer with all new components, but wish to keep my 2 drives,
    which are a CD Burner and a DVD Burner which are Beige in color, and wish to buy a
    black atx mid tower and a black keyboard, I have seen faceplates you can buy, but they
    are not identical in features as what I have, has any one used a spray paint to get the
    results they wanted, what kind of paint did you use? vs. buying new faceplates, if you
    have a website supplier for colored faceplates, I would appreciate any input!

    Yes standard mat black - no problems
    Yes check the DVD manufacture label, and go to their site to order a new face plate.

    Just paint it ! (obviously remove the cover first) Leave to dry, then refit

    Maybe a flat black would be better.
