Default Where would you put your "Watercooled" case label on?

Guys,

I need everybody's opinion on preferable location and therefore size of computer case decal, which will indicate that your system is water cooled.

I know that not everybody put labels on, but I still like to know what you think if you would...

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Depends on the case really - some would look gaudy in the front. I personally have no labels or stickers on my cases, but if I were to put a "watercooled by xxxx" label, i'd say have it case badge size in the back.. perhaps by the PSU or above the i/o shield plate.

When it's feasible, I like putting them on the HDD cage so I can see them through the window. (On my own personal rigs)

Yeah the small subtle thumbnail sticker (that would go in the front, like the ones that corsair ships with PSUs, etc) would be the best for most users. Keep it subtle, or otherwise most folks won't want them. A large decal (like the ones that go on side panels) might turn off many users, especially if they have a large window to show off the parts inside.

If the case has a door on the front (and its possible) have it air brushed lightly in about half a hand size. If not, a laser cut plate on the front for a drive bay cover.

See the Noctua case badges. Simply stunning and not too in-your-face.

They definitely have the best badges. Simple design, yet sturdy and awesome looking!
