That looks awesome in white, maybe they could include different colour stickers like Asus do with the new DCUII cards.

The only problem i can see is that it would be quite difficult to get a new even coat across the inside and outside of the heatsink due to all the little fins.

You can remove the anodizing from the heatsinks with this method.


It should give you good base to paint onto as no blue would bleed through in the places that are hard to reach.

If you don't want to go down the DIY route with the heatsinks you could always send them off to be Anodized, the costs may not be worth it though.
Sorry, I don't think I was making that much sense, I was talking about for the OP because I thought I read that he was wanting to Do something to his motherboard like he mentioned in one of his posts.
Sorry for the confusion .

I'd avoid using self adhesive vinyl for GPU shrouds they look great when you finish but.... give it a few days or even hours of gaming/folding or any general load heat they peel and blister like mad, probably best to give it a rub down and spray it.

Well what I would love to do is have an MSI Z87 GD65 with white accents instead of red on the chipset and power heatsinks.

My current mobo is ty Gigabyte OEM style, but that will be gone soon in favor of whichever one I can find/mod with my color scheme.
