So I plan on buying the gigabyte vega 64 as it’s the only reasonably priced Vega 64 out of the literal three options at the minute. The only thing I don’t like though is the orange accents. I was wondering if I could remove the shroud and use a heat resistant paint to paint over the black (not the copper plate on the backplate of course, just the orange accents)

Would this be possible? Also, any paint suggestions?

That would work, or you could find a compatible custom cooler.

Like that Nzxt one where you can hook up a radiator to it? That one doesn’t support Vega but if you could find one, let me know

Enamel paint that works on plastic. Some paints have a primer built in, those are pretty good too.
