Hi everyone!!! This is my first post ever.
Have to say that you really do a great job of paint, everyone of you.
I'm from Spain, so excuse me about my crappy English.

I show you, by the moment, the only thing that I paint and hope I can join the club! It's the Gpu, also have some others parts but I will wait to show everything Finished . Me And My Shop Are working On My rig

And one question... I'm thinking of paint the black EK fittings and angles that I want on White... You think there will be any problem?
What you recommend? Primer and plastic Paint... Or directly paint it on white?
Have to say that once the fittings will be on the rig I will not touch them at all....

Cheers!

Welcome and great job on the GPU biggrin.gif

Is the fitting plastic or metal? If it's metal you might need a primer, but if it's plastic then you could use Kyrlon Fusion which does not require a primer.

They are EK black fittings 13/10....
I saw that Snef used plastidip. Maybe it works without primer.
My rig is doing on a shop (for a few months because we encounter a few problems) and they're gonna look what to do. But for me, primer and then Paint... Or maybe the special calorific Paint (supports over 200 or 300 grades)

We may as well rename this to the snef fan club.
Your work is brilliant, and something like 90% of the photos uploaded

First time I saw this, let me toss mine into the ring:







Haven't thought about the Mobo, was worried about paint mucking up the circuits...

LOL, you've painted your Titans !

I know it's only the outer cover but you've took it to the next level biggrin.gif

As for the mobo, if you wanna be safe you can get a Sabertooth and paint the Thermal Armour.

Even if you spray paint the mobo directly, as long as the paint is not conductive you'll be fine.

That white LGA1156 and that red AM3+ mobo I've painted from a while back are still running great.


Oh and great job Snef! The club will be named after you until someone else submit's photos of their painted hardware. thumb.gif
