Question Can I Plastidip the pcb on a sound card?

So I’ve got a soundblaster AE sound card, the pcb side is a crazy black and white color scheme. Can I plastidip it? I’m a little concerned about it getting too hot, but I don’t know how much heat a sound card really gives off. The shroud is fine already, it’s black, which is what I’m going for, it’s just the PCB side that’s driving me crazy, it really seems like they make these upside down to me. What do you guys think? Anyone ever try this? I know some people paint their whole mobo, so how bad could this be? Thanks very much for your help.

Thanks for the reply, that’s exactly what I was concerned about. After looking around online I did see that they produce a significant amount of heat. Any thoughts on using a conformal coating and an enamel paint, or do you think that would probably be just as bad?
