Custom White /LED XFX R9 270 GPU

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

Testing!!

and finally, painted white!

Another shot in the new case with the new cooler… and the XFX play hard emblem added (not powered up)

EDITED:
Lit up!

Oh, and what did I do with the 290x shroud? this.. now I WISH i had a 290x!!

Very nice mod, like how clean and materialistic it looks πŸ™‚

Nice . The 290x shroud would look good with a GPU under it as well .

He just needs to get a good hard plastic Goku to hold it up, He will hold up any GPU πŸ˜›
