How suitable would this material be for ram sinks? I think it would look real sharp on the non pointy ram sinks, but heat might be too great an issue given the nature of the material.

Youre right, It will insulate the heat sinks, and prevent them from fully dissipating the heat

Inspired by some of the great Di-Noc idea's I've seen around, I set about doing one of my own:

This is the motherboard tray of my new Thermaltake Level 10 GT "Snow Edition". The tray is NOT removable, so some drilling was required to get the rivets out and free the tray. I then applied white Di-Noc with a heat gun and a lot of patience and re-assembled. The white goes nicely with the ample white of the case.

Personally I love the look and can't wait to start moving my hardware into this new case.

Finally got around to doing mine, one panel on the mouse needs to be reapplied but wanted to wait since I will be using the scrape from my KB. Did not want to waste the 12 inch I have left. Turned out alright though, more you work with it the easier it is IMO. Best way I found towards the end was tones of heat and 2 ppl, makes stretching it so much easier. Keyboard turned out better than the mouse but again learned more as I went.

Thank You.

Thats turning out nice, I was amazed by the amount of stretch you get with this product.

I plan to do some more with this product but will have to wait till after xmas for some room in the shop.

How would this stuff work on the top of a case like the 650D? And does it come in Red?

You would just have to apply then cut out the grill, shouldnt be too hard.
This place has more options for patterns and "colors", sadly no red.
