I always wanted to know what a blue motherboard looks like in a black and red case.

How did you paint the top/front red? It looks simply fantastic!

^ i dissasembled everything... the chrome side thing and the mesh... it took me about an hour to do it but it's worth the effort not to mention some small cuts to my hands and fingers from the sharp edge of the mesh... then i painted only the plastic underneath with fire engine red paint...

:)

oh the paint looks better in person... the mesh is giving it a really unique effect... depending on the lighting and the angle that you look at it... sometimes it's maroon/ orange/ rusty red or just plain red...
