Ask and ye shall receive. What does one do when there's no such thing as an Asus Rampage V Black Edition? Make your own, of course!
Tools of the trade. X-acto, tons of tape, acrylic paint, and brushes.
I also used a cheapo DDR4 stick of ram (as though there is such a thing!) and an old PCIe card to block each slot as I painted it. There are other techniques out there of course. Spraypaint, Plasti-Dip, etc. But I felt like this would give me the nicest finish, precision, and a bit of texture to boot. I'll post a video of the process this weekend but for now, here are the results...
Not too shabby. You can still see a bit of red inside the slots, but none once they're plugged, and I'd rather have that then the chance of the contacts getting messed up.
