One of these days I am going to have to do murder sleeving.

As for the tri-fire thing, I guess if you have the money to burn on "trial runs" of hardware, then go for it. I'd find the loss of selling almost-new GPUs pretty hard to swallow personally, but when you're doign a top-tier build, I guess you gotta go with whatever's top tier now...

These came in the mail today.



Pulled out the trusty can of Plasti-Dip to do my IO shield + PCIe slot covers.



ioXtreme, Prelude, Titanium HD.


Removed the logos on the ram. Love the way it looks now.


DO NOT WANT. Will be re doing the USB3.0 cable. I do not want to use black, however I can't find any white heatshrink or grey sleeving that will fit it.

The texture of the plastidip looks great. May I know the exact type you use? I am going to go nuts spraying all of my parts.
You mentioned you used it for your cases before - any special considerations for screw holes?

Plasti-Dip black. You can get it @ Home Hardware. But it is rather expensive in Canada. $19.99/can. You don't want to use it on places that will see a lot of wear. Do lots of coats. For screw holes I would suggest using a plastic washer (like the MDPC-X ones). Otherwise the screw head will pull on the plastic coating and usually rip it. The major plus is that is is easily removed. Just rip if off.

Really plasti-dip is that easy to remove? I've been tempted for a long time to paint my Cosmos S interior but always afraid of a lot of work later if I want to change colour schemes.
