Best Paint?

I'm going to follow this guide right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyDxXhkh7EY&index=1&list=FLm931f-PqQkSlL-s-thD-Lg

But instead of leaving the text white on the graphics card, I wanted to paint it red. Is Plasti dip the way to go, or is there any better that can handle more heath?

The Plasti dip I found can handle up to +93°C. Appreciate help, I don't want it to melt when gaming!

The outside of your card won't get up to 90C.. No where close to it.

 

If you want to remove it, get plastidip. If not, find the paint appropriate for the surface.

I use VHT paint. It's meant for cars. basically very good quality paint. One of the ones I use is rated for 900°F (482°C). so no issues when it comes to heat....lol.

Just be carefull with the matte ones. It doesn't really look that nice IMO, the glossy are better.

It's plastidips little thing it can do. People have been using it to paint cars, because it's cheaper than getting a car painted, they can do it themselves, it's durable, looks good, but best of all, Plastidip can be removed. Literally you can peel it off when you get sick of it. You need to actually try to do it once it's cured, it's not the sort of thing that like, you bump it slightly and it will start lifting or something

Thanks, I don't think I will get sick of it! My build is red/black except for my Graphics card and my Ugly ass DVD drive.

I thought about doing Red/Black, although the wave of Red/Black parts leads me to believe a lot of people are doing red/black these days. As for DVD drives, I just ordered a H440, so there's my opinion on those

Yeah, I just put my old Drive into my new chassi, you can't see it from the front. And I like to buy some games physically, so I need a DVD drive :D

Fair enough. The last game I bought physical for PC was Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm. Only because I found a collectors edition of it, and I already had the game installed because I'd bought a standard digital edition. I just wanted all dem Zerg things

Removing the paint. If you end up not liking what you've done you can remove plastidip.
