Ooooooooh, I'm so glad that Asus made the colored accents optional. I would've loved to have bought an Asus GTX 660 Ti to go with my blue Asus motherboard, but alas, it was red as well. Ended up getting an MSI GTX 660 Ti instead (and, before anyone questions my choice, I evaluated my options and found that price/performance were just about equal between the MSI/Asus boards, so I bought whichever one was prettier).

If you want stickers to cover your graphics card, just google "Sign shop" to find a sign shop in your area. They'll sell adhesive material in any color that you can put on your card. Many are even capable of custom printing, so you can put any design you want on there. You could put your own face on your card if you want that extra-personal touch.

Great! I'll go to a sign shop right now and get a sticker with my face printed on it for my chipset heatsink! :P

But seriously though, thanks for the tip! :)

Like speed holes and racing stripes, it makes it go much faster didn't you know!!

Maybe I'm just jealous because the ASUS 770 GTX I just bought didn't come with them

Stickers? STICKERS?! Is their target market 4-12 year olds? How about software-customizable multicolored LEDs? That would get my attention. I have no interest in giving my graphics card a gold star for its performance.

A bit cynical, don't you think? Nobody has to apply them that doesn't want to, and the stock black heatsink looks pretty gnarly without them. But for those who want a little extra flair, I think it's a great idea to give them the option.

Also, just to clarify, these aren't paper stickers, but actual metal strips with adhesive.

Atleast they are metal, but the color options are gaudy (gold, really?) Maybe carbon fiber or brushed titanium or just different colors to match the mobo or other theme one is doing would be better?
