    I'm going to start collecting case badges:) Maybe they will be worth something in the distant future, lol.

    So do you use them or leave them in the box?

    The Pentium dual core one is from an E2160 that i ordered for my girlfriends son, but i kept the badge :D
    I have a sapphire one also thats stuck on my old case.

    I didn't get any in my graphics card or current motherboard. Do MSI or Abit do badges?

    I gave $5.50 for an OCZ case sticker. I'm still waiting for my MSI badge to ship. Yes, I use the ones I have. My latest build has almost all the hardware stickers and badges used in its construction. The only ones I need, like I said, the MSI and then, Aerocool and LiteOn. And also Silverstone...two rear fans are Silverstone.

    I predict that whoever goes into business dealing in all possible PC logo style case stickers and badges, would make a good living. But that's just my opinion. When I say "logo style" I mean stickers and badges based on computer components...brand names and models and such.

    Case badges are a hideous infection to cases. It's like advertising leprosy.

    Just ignore him, he probably hasn't got any:D
    I see you have a HX620? Your corsair badge is blue. Is this the norm for the 620w model? I prefer the black badge of the 520w myself:)

    When I had a desktop I used to leave them in the boxes.

    The reason being my components used to change on a regular basis so the stickers on the case would likely no longer apply a month or so down the line.

    The other reason being I used to have a Lian-Li and I could never spoil that piece of engineering brilliance with a case badge/sticker.

    didnt stick any case badge as (for me) a clean case is a good looking case :)

    of my badges, i lost the core2duo, gave the eVGA (from my 7600GT) to the buyer, and my Gigabyte badge is still in the box

    but if i get hold of a celeron badge, i might stick it on my case on next week's lanparty just for fun :D

    I use badges to cover up stuff like locking hole or anything of that nature.

    I used one to cover up the leds on the front of my case because they are so bright it's annoying. other than that I don't bother to take them out of the box. They just make a mess, and when you upgrade stuff then you have to switch them around and all, it's just pointless to me, but some people must like it. To each their own.

    Cool looking case. I like black cases, also.

    I have a mirror shiny black Ultra Aluminus waiting for me to put together my Intel X975 Crossfire/Q6600 system. I think the Red ATi accents involved with this black case would be cool. The motherboard is also black...an Abit AW9D-MAX.

    EDIT -
    Here's my current case, I call it my MSI-AMD Crossfire system:

    Side window stickers...the lower left is darkened but it's a Windows Vista Certied sticker:
