On that note, I'm curious if you or anyone knows if the black front panel finish is "annodized aluminum" or some other spray-on finish?
If annodized, that might suggest that with the appropriate solvent (such as denatured alcohol, mineral spirits, acetone, etc.) that awful Silverstone logo could be carefully removed, without damaging the finish .... leaving an all black professional looking faceplate?
Do you ... or does anyone on this thread know the specifics of the Silverstone face panel finish (such as annodized or painted)?
The front panel appears to be annodized aluminum....your suggestion for using denatured alcohol would definitely work.
