    For the sake of your paintjob and your board both, I hope you used vinyl dye for that.

    I get modding to make things better or different but this is OTT & not a good idea, kids don't go spraying your mobos, it could make you cry if you paid good money for it. :)

    This is actually irresponsible project logging just showing pictures with no info on safety precautions needed to stop people new to modding doing it themselves & wrecking their kit.

    Voiding warranties is 1 thing but this, I'm sure it will be awesome if all measures have been taken so it doesn't kill the gear but really, for stuff like this it really needs more info. :lol:

    Does look better & nicely in theme of the project. :)

    So, looks like you blasted paint all over the connectors around & in them :lol: cleaned up, booted up & still works. Woo hoo :clap::hehe:

    I do have questions though. :D

    What about the dried paint inside the connectors, did it scratch off when inserting cards & RAM back in & out allowing you to blow the loose scratched off paint out?.

    One last thing on this episode, regular paint or special?. :D

    Very dark and very nice.
    I hope the paint will stay on all those different kinds of plastic and metal.

    well I just inserted the card then removed then attach then remove. haha I did it for almost 20x each slots and connectors ;) then I used a brush to remove all the excess paint :D and it all work :)

    paint is just an ordinary paint :)

    Very nice Paul.

    I always believed that acrylic paint is the one you want to do this "risky stuff!" :)

    Keep it up!
