I Was Putting Pretty Stickers On My Case Until...

Go to solution Solved by SpookyCitrus,

Yes as the others have said those stickers are for the CMOS battery, usually come with ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards where the battery is in a visible location. Just makes it look more aesthetically pleasing. Especially if you have a specific color scheme and the silver of the battery doesn't match it, but then again the stickers are usually a set color anyway or the CMOS is behind the graphics card, so in most cases they are pointless.

What the heck are these battery decals supposed to mean.

These are the stickers that came with my ASUS TUF GAMING PLUS X470 Motherboard.
(RIP X470, B550 is about to come out but you have to expect your tech to go out of date some day, preferably not whilst you're building it but it'll happen anyway).

Anyway what do these battery decals mean, I don't understand what they're for.

I took the picture with my laptop  webcam, (my laptop to be replaced by my desktop, it's a 17" laptop so it's not very portable anyway), because I couldn't be bothered to take a picture with my phone then transfer it to my PC to upload, so I just took a shortcut.

If no one knows what the battery decal stickers mean please try to direct me to someone who does.

I just guess these might be for the CMOS battery on your motherboard? I don't think they are battery-themed stickers.

I think they're intended to go on the back of the CMOS battery as decoration.

I bet this would look really cool on a stock Intel cooler

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

On the off chance they actually have meanings perhaps pics of each singly with a google image search might find an answer

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

SpookyCitrus is it really safe to put a sticker on your CMOS battery?

Whilst looking this up on Google some guy apparently broke his CMOS battery by removing the CMOS battery and putting the sticker on then when he put it back in it stopped working.

I could be the idiot put the sticker on that part that transfers electricity. And CMOS batteries can be easily replaced, but still.

Curious Pineapple how do you see a captain rank in that left sticker, it looks like a Corporal or Sergeant rank. Neither UK nor US militaries have a symbol like that for captain, which military did you compare it to?

Probably because it was a joke and not something to be dwelled on for accuracy.

As long as the contact surfaces on top and side are clean it's fine. Top being the negative side.

You put those stickers on your nipples.

Our Grace. The Feathered One. He shows us the way. His bob is majestic and shows us the path. Follow unto his guidance and His example. He knows the one true path. Our Saviour. Our Grace. Our Father Birb has taught us with His humble heart and gentle wing the way of the bob. Let us show Him our reverence and follow in His example. The True Path of the Feathered One. ~ Dimboble-dubabob III

Should be fine, it goes on the top which is the negative. Taking the CMOS battery out for 1 second to put the sticker on shouldn't be a problem unless the computer is on. Just make sure the PC is off and unplugged from the wall and you should be fine, you may not even have to remove the battery to put the sticker on.
