    Don't forget Lian Li's PC 888, modelled after a hotel in Dubai.

    I'm kinda disappointed, I would think that they'd use the 5970 for the batmobile cooler :( Should put it on the fastest model since the batmobile should be awesome!

    There was a 8800GT with a Hentai* sticker on it posted in the Demots thread ages ago although I have a feeling it was shopped. I have however seen a few images of graphics cards with varios anime characters printed on the box/card around the place.

    (*technically it was ecchi not hentai but more poeple are familiar with the term hentai so meh. Also, why do we dereference a pointer every time we make a footnote? :D)

    EDIT: OK, so it wasn't the demots thread.

    Call me a curmudgeon if you will but I think Gigabyte has completely missed the point. I mean all credit to them for trying but the whole batmobile appeal of the 5000 series was the black AND red, not to mention it was just a design nod. This, however, looks preciesly like what it is, a cheap bit of plastic stuck on top of a graphics card. It doesn't have any design flair or serve any practical purpose - it doesn't even cover the whole card or duct air out the case.

    If you're going to do this sort of thing then at least give it some thought, i.e.
