Black what? Why black?  Gray primer should do pretty well.  Applying it to the whole board may affect the result.  If it is too thick, it insulates.  If it is too thin and has good emmissivity, it can cool the board.

Black because we got a couple of cans of this and that. The black stuff was best when put on as lightly a we could spray it.
