Hey guys I was wondering if it was safe or possible to paint the plastic parts on a motherboard (such as the outside of the PCIE slots and SATA ports) without causing any physical damage to the board. I am looking to repaint one of my DFI boards to get rid of the horrid orange color that doesnt match my rig.

Just painting those slots carefully doesn't seem like it should be a problem. Just might be a b*tch to get a really nice jobe done. plus, I would think you don't want to get paint down into the contact areas.

get some kneadable eraser and put it in any slots you don't want paint on also make sure the paint doesn't contain any metal, and isn't conductive.

It's kind of tricky to remove sometimes but should be good for using just try to take it out of the slot before the paint dries maybe put some tissue paper underneath.
