Vinyl wrap ugly 6950

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried vinyl wrapping a gpu(I mean the cooler)? I'm looking to wrap a reference 6950 since they won't work with my color scheme because of the red.

If anyone has pictures of this I'd love to see them.

I'm contemplating on painting the fan on the 6950 with a silver sharpie also

You should probably be able to do it. But you would have to take some time and it might be easier to just paint the cooler.

hehehe you'd be better off painting it, if you tried to use a sharpie the color would be really streaky and blotchy.

Idk about the blotchy thing. It would be behind a acrylic window, and the fan would be spinning at 700+rpm. I'm also considering just going over the red accents in silver sharpie too. Maybe I'll just put a big obnoxious sticker on the fan so I don't see the blotches lol

... dude don't half-ass it, when you go to sell it, or even open it up and look at it, you'll say "what was I thinking?"

Either paint it (properly), wrap it, or leave it.

As far as taking about the 6950 reference cooler, how will that be done? Is it possible to remove the fan without completely removing the heatsink? I'd prefer to paint it if this can be done without removing the heatsink from the board, but it's going to be painted with sharpie just to see what it looks like.

Now only if I could fine a ASus sabertooth p67 shield picture of one that was painted white.

Id wrap it in ni-doc. As far as information about carbon wrapping I'm well versed. I'm using it on my car fender also since I don't feel like repainting it
