Painting SSD

Would I be able to just pain the red line on this SSD, or something along the lines of that? I want to make it a deep purple once I get it. Maybe a strip of 3M carbon fibre?

You can, but personally I'd just print out a design on high quality paper and use a light adhesive to stick it to the drive instead of painting on the case directly.

I wouldn't recommend painting your SSD as that might void your warranty. You should carefully review your warranty first. Besides, I wouldn't recommend PNY in the first place.

sighs why is that?

Likely preference of MLC and 3D TLC over typical run of the mill TLC.

I was expecting it to be because of them doing a switch and bait on the Optima and not because of that. If that is his reason its perfectly valid.

But he said PNY, not that PNY SSD in particular. Based off his past reasons for not recommending PNY it's likely because of the unexpected occasional use of SandForce controllers in the Optima and his USB flash drives from PNY failing.

You could but it could be a ten foot mod depending on how it goes.

Its just the red strip, this is the rest of the build. Now that I think about it, the hdd/ssd would be covered anyway...

Also, how is this motherboard for overclocking, do you have any idea?

Its a decent board for overclocking. Damn at those RX 480 prices. Just as much as a R9 390 or a GTX 970 was. I was expecting it to be in the ~160 pound range in the UK. That is $322 USD!!!!

I know... I can get a used 980 for cheaper which I might do if I can still get them at Christmas
