    I am less and less keen on cooling for gfx cards that does not vent out of the case. With heat outputs over 100 watts dumping this in the case and then having to install extra case fans to evacuate the hot air is inefficient.

    Any card that is going to take up more than one slot has no excuse for not venting out of the case.

    Im with Xtanto on that one. But more so than that, I agree with the fact that they should concentrate on applying this to the newer/higher end cards like 9800GTX or 9800GTX+.
    I know they are doing this in a desperate attempt to sell the 9800GT, which lets face it is really not an attractive choice. But the consumers are largely wiser than that.

    why are they not attractive cards? they are cheaper than the 8800GT so with about 1 FPS different in some games(almost identicle) its worth paying less. I agree with the cooling though, high end cooling that doesnt shove it out the case is just a poor design, granted hot air rises but then it goes over/through the cpu heatsink with hot air etc so it heats the case up while getting to the upper fans.

    Oh there not bad, just with the 4850 and now 9800GTX+ as well, its just all getting too close for the (lets face it 8800GT in disguise) 9800GT.

    I don't think my case will accommodate a 15-slot cooler
