When I paint radiators at work, we have a special radiator enamel paint. I am sure any industrial enamel would work though. Just got easy on the paint. You could always send me the rad, just pay shipping. I'll clean it and paint it.

DupliColor paint works fairly well also and comes in a nice variety of colours. Used it before on a car rad(which would be similar to a comp rad) which turned out pretty good.
