My HM water cooling

Picture of my comp:

Sistem is rock stable:
AthlonXP 2500+ on 11.5x 225Mhz with 2x256Mb Twinmos/Winbond DC on 8 3 3 3 2 and 1x 256Mb GEIL PC3200 (all on 225Mhz); temp is 36C full load (picture-Aerogate shows water temp); MB is 8rda3+ without mods (ok I glued some copper ribs on my mosfets); I´m cooling my water with two push/pull 12cm vents(best solution for me - I tested them all).
I made block by myself (1cm copper plate and 1cm acryl-plexi), water pump is MaxiJet 1000.

P.S. Stickers that says AquaTec is just some logo that I modified (it is just cool sign).

Box where the reservoir is covered with styro - helps me to maintain the temperature (in summer of course) of water/ before I bought this pump it also helped me to lower the noise (this one is very quiet).

I decided that the old beige tower needed a little help.so I added a window and some large flake metallic paint and coated it with clear acrylic.I also added a home-made drive rack that I could remove easily.I still need to metalflake the drives and get a few more rounded cables for my second array.

I'm just getting into the beginning stages of modding my case. So far I've just worked on some basic visual improvements. I trashed the stock wire fan cover because it looked like trash and replaced it with a nice flame shaped one that looks pretty sweet with the LED fan behind it. I've also installed a couple of blue cathodes that give it a nice glow. The next step in my mission is to install the several components I just ordered. I'm not sure where I'll put the blue EL wire (maybe in the front), I'll probably put the two purple (UV) cathodes on the top and bottom of the case and I need to think of things to spray down with the UV reactive paint that's coming with it. I might just take all of the electronics out of the case and just spray it down to make the whole thing glow. Ok, here's where I need some advice: do you think the stock boring IDE cables can be painted with this UV spraypaint? I'm thinking that they should be fine but I'd rather not have to buy some new ones. So, will they be destoryed by the paint or not?
