I recently bought -finally- a PCI wi-fi card for my PC. I wouldn't normally care about how it looks.. But, since I have a window side panel, it looks really not good. I have a red case, black/red mobo, black/red GPU.. And a blue wifi card. Is there any way to cover it? Get a shroud or a heatsink or whatever
(I don't want to spray paint the pcb or things like that)

You can get styrene sheets at a hobby store or online. Here’s some “basics” about working with styrene:

Some of those techniques like vacuum forming might not be necessary especially just for a small pcie card shroud , but if you are so motivated go for it. I made a shroud by cutting the sheets and bending the edges, then glueing them together. You can spray paint it or try to get it in the color you want.

I might try this as my last option, as I often don't have the time to work on DIY stuff. But it could work, can make it quite personalised too. I see the pros
