GTX590 (or any other GTX5XX etc) sticker peeling off

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've had my GTX590 for about 5 days now and the sticker on the right side of the card is starting to peel off due to the heat. How to deal with this? I'm guessing your not allowed to take it off due to warranty....so has anyone used glue or anything similar to keep it from peeling?

Same thing happened to my HIS 6870 ref card. I just pealed the stickers off both sides of the card and put them on the plastic carton inside the retail packaging.

I don't think there would be any problems as long as you don't rip the stickers. If you have to RMA it, just stick them back on.

If you can, just use a heatgun or hairdryer on highest heat setting and loosen up the other sticker so it comes off without leaving glue on the card.

Edit:
Also, if your going to remove the stickers, remember to leave any stickers with a serial number on the card.

Sounds good, cheers!

My GPU used to look silly with all those HIS sword stickers all over it anyways. Now it just looks like a OEM card thumb.gif
