It turns out the prime X-470 pro has an incredibly basic I/O shield (flat blasted aluminium, pretty boring.) so I'm hoping someone has some knowledge on exactly HOW to long-term paint it for cheap OR knows how or where to get a custom I/O specific to my board or config... Many thanks for all those that can help

It can either be black with ASUS symbol or white as my case is black and white and my colour scheme is black, white, gray, and aura sync probably going between salmon and Cyan colour for me and purple and pink when she's on it.

Thanks again for anything anyone knows

I’ll try this again

You can use vinyl stickers to make it white for cheap and non-permanently. I’ll try to find some pictures from here

If you want to go fully custom, I would recommend a dremel and some aluminum. Although make sure you cut in the tabs that ground the motherboard to the case

Spray paint should do the job, and you can use vinyl stickers if you want a pattern. Check out Dietec's YouTube channel if you need some more info.
