    I have purchased aa Sapphire Radeon X800GTO , and it comes with a female in black and white! I've seen it called the fireblade card if that helps. the reason I ask is that I want to get the exact sticker to put on the corner of my case . If i did it right there should be an attatched photo of the character in question any leads would be helpful as ATI and Sapphire have been no help so far. thanks!

    I really doubt its gonna happen. Your best bet would be to get a high resolution scan and have a sticker custom made. Shes ugly anyway.

    Great find....I am sooo going to do this....It looks even better than with the stickers, plus you have unlimited options....Very nice find (give this guy a pat on the back).

    Will post up how it looks once I put the computer together...Now I just have to learn better wire management...Hmmm can anyone help with that?

    The problem with the wire management is my new case has very limited space behind the motherboard tray and I prob. cant get too many of the unused wire behind there. Plus there are a lot of wires from the temp. control. So where do I put all of the wires I use/dont use. I usually hide the wires I dont use in unused bays in the front. But could I put the wires that I go to the GPU, back fan, etc. near the back of the case (Should I line them on the bottom of the case or tape them down)? Thanks a bunch

    Well first, cable ties will make all clumped up wires four controller ect help A TON. Hide wires behind anything really, behind drive bays, in the middle of drive bays ect. I would actually tape them down, if you have a window Hide the wires on the edges (like is the window goes off to the case color)and all youll see is inside the comp, but when you open that pc all the wires iwll be hiddin behind those ecthed out areas were there is no window making alot better. Im doing a clean up this up coming monday, And im taking out a ton of wires I dont use, And im cable ties them, then taping them with electrical tape behind components so they will stay, and no one will see them. I have the same issue limited behind the mobo, but behind and in between drive bays I have a TON of area to hide cables, I actually taped them aong side the case so you cant see them till you open the case (Its very hard to close to the case sometimes :mad: But thats all right, ask anymore questions if I didnt thorougly help, Im very good at hiding cables lately, also it all depends on the case sometimes.

    I found that link ages ago and thaught it was cool so I bookmarked, I still have to do the mod myself though :p

    Its very easy to do but I have to do exams now. There is just no time to mod :(
    As to wire management:
    Do the stuff drade mentioned. Be creative. And for the cables you just cant hide (like the power cables)...

    Get spiral wrap.
    Do your wirering and after you are done with that start packing the wires together with spiral wrap. I prefer white but you can get it in lots of colours. Get enough so you dont get stuck with ugly parts that arent couvert like I have. It will make the cables that are still visible look less ugly, and it gives better airflow.

    One more tip: I still have PATA HD's so no funky little HD cables for me. I got some nice uv reactive IDE cables and a UV cathode. The trick to make it look nice is to do your power wiring first and after that put your nice UV reactive cables "over" them. The powercables will be behind the UV cables so they arent that noticible.

    I'm still experimenting on wire management myself so if I have new ideas ill post them here to. Good luck!

    And if anybody has the "pic in window" mod done please post pics :p

    So what kind of paper did you put behind it and what did you use (printer, ink, etc.). I want to do one as well and was just curious. Thanks

    the whole idea came from PVTCaboose(many thanks by the way), he sent the link earlier in the thread. I used what was at hand for me. I have a plain HP 1401 all in 1 printer with stock ink . It also help that my lady is into scrapbooking, which gave me "free" things to use. I just took a sheet of
    velumn(frosted plastic in 8.5-11 inch) stuck it in the printer. worked great image worked just like the sight said. then I applied cardstock paper behind it to show of the detail and make the image stiff. the reason i used heavy paper is twofold, one it made the pic rigid because my window was too big to use the "sleeve" they advise. Also it helped in the fact it was thick enough so no light gets through. Hope it works out for you.....PS get and extremely sharp hobby knife to cut makes all the fine work lots easier!!!
