Plasti dip gpu backplate

:DISCLAIMER: (english is not my main language so im sorry for any spelling mistakes in this post)

 

So im going to install a see through lcd screen in my pc i saw it at a lan party and wan't to do it. So im painting most of my components white and adding a white panel on top of my z370-a prime asus motherboard. Here is the question is plasti dip heat resistant like just under a 100 celsius or 212 fahrenheit is it conductive, is there a better product to use in this case? I have posted a picture of my pc down here. You guys (and girls) are welcome to come with tips and tricks i need them all for my big rebuild.

Plasti-dip isn't conductive, however it'll also act as an insulator, which means worse cooling for the back of the card.

Does it begin flake off at high temperatures?

It's a plasticy rubber material, so it shouldn't flake off like regular paint would.

 

Plasti-Dip's website says it can withstand temperatures of around 200F, so the high temperatures shouldn't harm it.
