    I'm making my own computer case out of aluminum. I'm also having it powdercoated. I just wanted to know if anyone knew if the inside of the case could be powdered too. I want to make sure that it won't interfere with the grounding of the case if a little over spray got on the inside.

    thanks,
    jay

    I don't think it will make any difference. I've seen where people have built cases out of plexi glass and even mounted all componets on plywood and hung it on the wall.

    No, the computer is grounded via the power supply, not the chassis. Consider that if you powdercoat the inside, you may run into fitment issues when you go to reassemble your case.
