I recently embarked on my very first case mod project. It's crazy how much time I spent sanding and painting my case. I'm very picky so it was hard to get it exactly as I like. And this is where I need help.

I noticed the color of my evga z75 motherboard I'm using is similar to the color of the matte black case paint. The problem is that I feel that the colors are too different to match, yet too similar to be two distinct colors. Now I'm debating wether I should repaint the case or not.

What do you guys think? It doesn't look as great as I had imagined and I've worked so hard to make things perfect.
My girlfriend thinks it looks great but it's likely a biased opinion.

Seriously any input is super appreciated! And if I should reprint, what kind of color do you all think would look good with the matte black motherboard?

Strip the paint leave it the raw metal and clear it.

I actually thought about it before. So then you aren't a fan of the paint as it is now?

Its preference thing honestly. I am doing my case mod right now.






I went with a clear red over raw metal and a high gloss clear over the red.

I decided to try out a z68 sli board from evga. I think the colors might mesh a bit better than before. It also has more pcie slots so may be a better choice in the end. What you think?
