yes


the more stickers you have on your case, the shinier your case becomes, and hence reflects more light, making your case cooler than ordinary sticker-less cases, which gives potential for increased performance.

Then why not buy an aluminum WHITE case with plenty of cooling and call it a day? I agree with Trotter...

a waste of time and money

lol, I asked about Viiv months ago and pretty much came to the same conclusion. Intels advertizing department is quite possibly the biggest group of idiots ever put together.
