Well take a look, it's your card

Just tap it with something

try a magnet too (small, VERY small one so it doesn't kill the hard drives)

Or try pushing a push pin into it gently

Plastic, it will push in

Metal will not.

You're going to paint it anyway..

this is the krylon glossy stuff

I have to do several coats

doing a light coat, letting it dry outside an hour or 2 and inside on the card each day to really dry

There are 3 screws holding it on.

But initially, you have to pry it off because it was soldered onto the heat pipes
