I really don't want to drop the dough on the RVE since it would be pointless however those other boards I mentioned are a bit cheaper. The responsible side of me says don't replace it would be a waste of money. Lol. I was thinking about all black if I did it. Think that might look good.
The Colour is completely up to you. But You could also Look at it like this (Follow me here)
1. You were already debating on getting another board correct? So if all else fails with the paint, then you could still go that route (Expensive)
2. The Only way to get better at something (Painting) is to try at first. If you don't succeed (They have things that remove paint, like water
or isopropyl alcohol (90% to be exact). Used rattle can paint on my board and had a little overspray. A little toilet paper and 90% Alcohol cleaned that right up.
3. Painting allows you to get exactly what colour you want. Grab a brush and Acrylic paint bottle for touch up at the Hobby Shop
4. Take a step back, and look at your results. You are the hardest Critic.
EDIT: It took a lot of sweating and being nervous before I started to paint a 450$ Motherboard (That I hadn't even test booted yet)
But it what I saw in my mind and needed to match the scheme of things.Edited by TheCautiousOne - 5/23/16 at 11:34am
