I have a question about modding the z170 mortar.

I'm looking to mod it, gonna make a custom IO guard for it.

But what I wanted to know was something about the blue caps all over the motherboard, would I be able to replace these with silver versions? or can I put white tape on top of them?

Blue caps are capacitors. No.

I'm aware of what they are. I asked if I can find replacements.

You can find replacements, but that means desoldering the current ones and replacing them. White non-conductive tape would be a safer solution.
