    hmmm could you explain it in more detail? im not sure what you mean, sorry

    try it carefuly on the edge, but i think itll atack the pcb and will make the surface rough and milky... theres some good electronics cleaning spray you can get in any car or hardwareshop

    hmmmm good points! i never thought about it that way... black is def better to spot ice/snow forming!

That way when its hit with black light, the MB glows and the shield pops in view. I think that would be just cool as hell!!!
    hmmmm well it would only be visible from the back since the front is blocked by the cpu, chipset and videocard heatsinks... but yeah, that would look cool!

    I would like a pink mobo.

    But anything else should be black, and blacker.

    White PCB, white slots, white or black heatsinks...

    PCI-Slots would be clear with inbuild LEDs.

    here is a further explanatin on teh clear idea


    so u said that the problems were 1 it turned yellowish and 2 it need light to look cool

    so if u move the power indicator lights to the bottom and made them biger, with some other decrative ones then there would be lights no matter what and it would look cool

    also do u have pics of the clear pcb, i havnt seen 1

    thanks for the feedback!

    here are some examples of what "clear" pcbs look like...
    not really cool with leds in the dark, but once you turn the light on and see the pcb... :S yuck!

    They should do fades on the motherboards.

    Have it be black on the CPU side and fade to lime green on the expansion slot side. I'd buy 5.
