Going to be getting a GTX 1080 from work but its black and orange. Any idea if the warranty will be voided by painting the shroud? I thought of using vinyl but don't trust my skills enough with it to attempt.

I already emailed them but not sure how fast there response will come. 

GV-N1080D5X-8GD is the model

  • I would suggest not painting but using plastidip. If you dip it and have a problem you can peel the stuff off and no one needs to be the wiser. You also don't have to sand anything just use several thing layers.

    Should a disassemble it? Because that might void the warranty as well. 

    Also new development, its gonna be an Asus branded GTX 1080

    So I got it.

    Contacted Asus and they said adding a waterblock does not void the warranty, so removing the shroud and painting is fine as long as I don't send it back with the plasti dip on it l, it should be fine.

    Super happy.
