Heat resistant paint?
 
Afternoon all,

I'm looking to do a bit of a colour change on a motherboard, changing the coloured accents on the heatsinks but I can't for the life of me find a suitable heatproof paint or anything suggesting over types of paint would be suitable?

I was tempted to pop into somewhere like Games Workshop and just grab a little pot of their blue as they've got a bazillion shades..?

Has anyone got any suggestions or experience on this matter?

Thank you in advance.

You could always try plasti dip, avoid radiator specific paints they are designed to retain heat.

FYI I wouldn't use citadel paints from games workshop, while they are nice colour wise they don't stand up to high temps, it flakes and peels over time.

Cheers dude, I'll see if I can find some small Plasti-Dip pots. I used to love the Citadel paints and had hundreds of them from years and years of collecting; good thing I've no idea where they are now or I could have made a boo boo in using them. lol

I tried ages ago, I still have hundreds of pots of Citadel with my Eldar army ;)

If you were about to paint something out of metal that had to resist some higher temps I would recommend engine enamel paints.

I would suggest going to an auto parts store and looking at the spray cans for engine parts. Also here at my home improvement store Home Depot there is a line of paints for painting Barbecue grill parts. I don't know if these would work though.

Cheers guys, that's a good idea. I had looked into engine paint but was concerned it could insulate too much.

The guys over at MNPC Tech have been doing it for years, seems to have proven being a good way.

Its really not needed tbh, any paint is fine. Motherboards dont create enough heat to warrant high temp paint.

Ive always used normal paints or Humbrol if I was in a rush
