Paint my graphics card, how?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a water cooled 8800gt that am putting in a consumers modded computer. Everythings blue,white and small traces of black, looks nice. But this "green" naked graphics card is aweful & a eye sore. The waterblock thats on the card is black so no bother. But the green card isnt working,

Are there paints they sell to paint ur pc hardware thats safe?

Thanks

You mean the PCB? I don't think so...

You can't paint the PCB, but you can probably paint the plastic heat shroud if there is one on the card (and it is removable). Just be careful not to paint over any latches or grooves that attach the shroud to the PCB. Cover those sensitive areas with masking tape. Use spraypaint that is designed for plastics only.
