    I'm really liking some of these. Who is judging? I assume maybe W1zz, a few mods from TPU, and some of the HIS higher-ups?

    Wow :eek:
    An excellent job by everyone who submitted artwork. Just an amazing amount of creatiivity by everyone. :toast:

    I am glad I am not one of the judges. Would be very difficult to decide.

    Some very cool designs here. It's a shame the stock cooler is just so damn loud. First thing I did on my 4890 was replace it. If it was quieter this may have been a cool thing to have. Still though, props to all the creators. Cool art!

    Why even post the ones using copyrighted images? I want to see original works of art here.

    Seriously, alot of these follow this formula: Google image search something hot, flashy, or fast, then use photoshop and some cool font to put in the card name. WOWEE THAT'S AMAZING.

    I have seen some very impressive stuff here though. Stuff that you can tell is homemade.

    as i said in the other thread, we will determine the best designs first and then remove the copyrighted ones top down. this saves a lot of work and drama

    there will be 8 judges from amd/his and 3 from tpu
    Random Murderer and DanishDevil say thanks.

    I submitted two entries, however I have a favourite design that I simply LOVE. I won't be disappointed if I ain't among the winners. Glory to those who deserve it.

    I saw my two entries. As said earlier, a lot of these conflict the rules. Mine don't btw. But what ever is left, it will be hard to choose. Some very creative work indeed.

    Everyone can make a sticker and slap it on his own card. But this is different.

    Some are very nice pieces of work.

    Good luck to all those that put the effort in.

    These are more out of the norm, but wouldn't mind seeing any of them on my card (if I had 4890)

    Some amazing designs here- with that many entries, I can see how the judges have their work cut out for themselves.

    Good luck to all who entered! :)
