Motherboard and Memory Painting

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

i want to paint my mobo and memory to green. But not completely, only some parts.

I'll paint the parts, parts shown in the picture. This parts can dissamble with screw. So, i can dissamble before paint them.

My motherboard is MSI Z170A Gaming 7 and my memory is Corsair Vengance.

There are pictures:





Is painting will be problem for parts?

And, what kind of paint i should use?

Thanks.

PS: Sorry for bad english. smile.gif

I dont know much about doing this exatcly, but i can only think of the paint being a problem in areas like heatsinks, if the paint is too thick, it's not going to perfom at its best. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Well that depends tongue.gif

If you are looking to have contrast then red is the best color to use, using the color wheel



That's also why they use green and red for christmas, and accents of gold. But I dont think you are looking for that hehe

What do you have in mind? or do you have some colors you also like to use? rolleyes.gif
