Is it just me or the photo or is the motherboard itself black?

I'm thinking of putting a window in my DVD drive top like that. Got to look into having enough clearance for the interneal components first cos the perspex I've got it 5mm thick.

Nope the MB is a SOYO Dragon Ultra(Platnium Edition) its silver.

For the CDROM Window I used a CD Jewel case and glued it to the inside of the cover(pretty sneeky I know).
