Humbrol paints are the best to use and even more so if using any spray gun. They won't crack.

My neighbour from a few years back used them to paint his brake calipers and damn, he did a good job (yellow and black hazard scheme)

Stick with enamels and you should be fine. (As Tom said, Humbrol should be fine). If you're brave, try thinning and applying with an airbrush, the finish will be much, much nicer.

I painted the heatsinks on my Gigabyte X79 UD3 with flat white. Came out really nice too

Not had any peeling or cracking either.

FYI I wouldn't use citadel paints from games workshop, while they are nice colour wise they don't stand up to high temps, it flakes and peels over time.
My experience with plasti-dip is this: It is not good for putting on things that get hot or need to be cooled. It dries to a very rubber like consistency and definitely does not allow for adequate cooling. I would honestly just use an enamel based paint. Nothing in your pc will get hot enough to bubble it and it goes on thin enough not to effect cooling much, IMO.
