Default painting inside your case or on internal components?

Has anyone here painted any parts inside their case?
I came across these....
I am new to this computer world. But love learning more about them each day.
I realy like the paint and contraist on the HDD cage. And I also love the fact that they painted the graphics card faceplate white.
Whats everyone think? Or experance with this? After searching google and yahoo I did not come up with many topics about this.
I supposed a lot of it depends on what you paint? And with what kind of paint?

Note. i didn't watch the videos you linked to.

It's interesting sure.
If i had a part that a REALLY wanted in another color. I would paint it as well.
Remember to take apart the hardware you want to spray and spray only that part needed and keep away from the PCB. Then assembly it again when it's dry. You might want to give it a little protective coat before you assembly that hardware again.
Also remember that this WILLvoid your warranty.

I find it funny when people say "why does it matter how the hardware looks. It's just gonna be inside the case anyway"
We are all different. Ask a guy that collect bottle caps why he likes them. He just do.
My case have a window to the important parts of the hardware. I want it to look good. So i have installed some LED lights in it and i like to keep a black and red color scheme as much as possible. I care about looks because i am proud of my built. Simple as that.

As long as you don't go painting the electrical circuits, the boards, heatsinks etc you should be fine!
