i never mentioned conductive paint.... strange that you automatically assumed someone would ask you about that....
it does look like there's a good amount of paint in the SATA ports and ram slots but if you say there isn't and you shopped the photos so be it.
they're pretty don't get me wrong but I don't think doing this should be encouraged after reading of others who destroyed their PCs from painting their motherboards.
Don't need any other proof than that. Sounds like a bad idea to begin with, and the fact that other people have done it and killed their mb, cpu and video card (ouch!) is enough warning for me.
But hey if you have some parts that are going in the trash anyway I suppose painting them to see what happens might be fun.
If you don't have anything better to do, please leave this thread in peace.
The inside of the slots are not painted, and the sata port's only have the top and inside fram painted, the metal is still bare.
I think that you, in this thread, is a bad idea.
