Graphics card mod question (easy!)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN. i purchased a PowerColor Myst Edition 7870, and I was wondering if i can put red carbon fiber vinyl on it without it melting. I ordered this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Metro-Series-Red-3D-Diagonal-Carbon-Fiber-Vinyl-Wrap-Sheet-2ft-x-1ft-/130790521321?hash=item1e73b8f9e9&vxp=mtr

And it is used on car mirrors etc, so i assume that if a car with this on it mirrors can sit in the 100 degree sun all day, that this should be fine to apply over a GPU unit. What do you think?

I've used DiNoc before on shrouds with no problem.

Not familiar with the term DiNoc, is that what I had ordered?

DI-NOC is a high quality version of your carbon fiber vinyl. It is made by 3M and I would suggest it because it is really high quality! I hope i helped. The carbon fiber vinyl should also not melt on the shroud.

Gotcha, well too late. I ordered what I had originally linked in OP, but i'm hoping it will be okay.
