When XFX saw my simple white R9 270, they sent me a box with a few goodies in it. Included were another R9 270 shroud, and a R9 290X shroud. So, I pulled apart the 290x and scavenged the LED panel from it…
So here is what my original card looked like
Then I took the new shroud and cut out the XFX
Shaved the LED panel down to fit in the 270 shroud (the 290x is much bigger)
Cleaned up a little, and working out how to wire it in to the 270
Showing the LED panel installed
and finally, painted white!
Another shot in the new case with the new cooler… and the XFX play hard emblem added (not powered up)
Oh, and what did I do with the 290x shroud? this.. now I WISH i had a 290x!!
