    Ok most of the 6800 cards have the label "Remove Seal After Washing!"

    What the hell is up with that? Who in the hell will be washing their graphic cards? What is the point of that label? ;)

    My system is quite dusty. I'll follow their order and throw it into the washing machine. :p

    After the components are soldered to a pc board the flux needs to be washed off. The give the boards a solvent bath and I think those "Remove after Washing" stickers prevent the markings on top of the components from being washed off.

    The real question here is: should we remove the seals or not? ;)

    YOU CAN...............
    its there on the small onboard speaker which gives error beep if anything goes wrong witht he card.
    It should be removed ideally otherwise you may not be able to listen to that when it gives error beep.

    After running through the soldering line the cards need to be washed w/ a solvent to remove the solder flux residues. You don't want the fluid in the speaker hence the sticker..

    Edit -- Note to self: stop skimming posts.. :)
