    I prefer the old ones. The new ones look messy and fat.
    It's as if the old badges have developed middle-aged spread and resorted to wearing excessive amounts of cosmetics in an attempt to look youthful and relate better to their teenage daughter.

    the new ones look too "busy"

    The old ones were nice and simple

    Then again, they're logos, what does it matter really?

    Clearly I was asking the question to those that build their own, otherwise it would be a moot question.

    I do like the way the die is peering around the corner...

    But I still prefer the old ones.

    Really? I think it's pretty fugly. Your average user won't have a clue what it is, and it makes it looks way too busy.

    Yeah, the old design may be a bit dated, and I can understand going horizontal for a change, but it's not pretty.

    Hell yes. I <3 my stickers. Shame the Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver one peeled off though :(

    From purely a design standpoint, the old ones were far superior and efficient in utilizing the available space as well as adhering to and complimenting the logo's design characteristics. The new ones look almost... lost, in a sense.

    Just my personal view on it.

    The new ones have more colours, so will cost more to print, so more money will be wasted on a questionably pointless accessory. I would prefer them to give me a 50P discount.
