    If custom backplates & standard "subtle" paintjobs are just too boring for you, hydrodipping may be an interesting option... but we do NOT recommend you try it at home...

                            And yes, It would give you many more points of failure and probably cost 5+ times more.

                                      Damn i give up. I had to look it up again to see how easy this looks here. I tried 3 different types of spray paint none of them stay "liquid" on the watersurface. They all become a milk skin like film and form ripples when sprayed on the water. Are european spraypaints different because of some hazard regulation or something?

                                        @Jake Walker Why would you think i didnt do that? Most of the time the dont say one word about what type, just any spraypaint. One said acrylic based well thats the first one i tried, didnt work at all.

                                      Did anyone tell him to lightly sand it before dipping?

                                              just Segways to say that in reality he will hydro dip a CPU instead of GPU. then ends up dipping Denis and his hand.
