White mITX Motherboards???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys i'm having a hell of time finding a white motherboard for my all white themed Photo/Video Editing build. I could use some help sourcing one.

 

Also is it possible to paint certain parts on a mobo that are non-metal without messing the board up?

 

All input appreciated!

 

Thanks!

sure you can diy paint your parts as you like.

btw itx are too tiny, so much parts will have covered it up, not much visual clearance left...

As long as the paint isn't conductive and doesn't insulate the board causing thermal issues, you should be able to paint it.

I was looking for something like the MSI Arctic series...

I'm not immediately aware of any white ITX boards. What CPU are you planning to get?

So a creamic based paint should be fine than? It'll only be non crucial parts fo the board anyways. 

8700K... You think that'll be adiquate for photo/4k video editing and rendering?

So the case I decided to go with is the Phanteks Evolv ITX Tempered in white which suppoorts mITX boards, but I just realized the same case that supports mATX boards is 3 inches taller. So i might just go mATX and get the MSI Mortar Arctic H270M if I could find it cause its sold out everywhere...but unfortunatly this limits me on the processor may have to go with a 7700K.
