Purchased an Asus A88X Pro for my build. At the time, I didn't consider any color schemes but have now chosen one. I don't like the A88X's gold plates, pci and ram slot. Is there a safe way to paint the motherboard or to conceal the golden parts to match my build?

Well, you can remove the heatsinks and paint them... though I am not sure how much that would effect the cooling.

The ram slots and PCIe slots are soldered down so you cannot easily remove them. You can tape over the top and paint those though.
