    It's not that bad, a black PCB would of improved it's looks a bit, as would a black rear IO plate and red dvi sockest

    But the real question will be how well it performs.

    One point I should make about heat pipes is it's not just how wide they are that effects there performance, far from it.
    The internal sturcture and the effeicenice of the capilery action, the amount of fluid with in them, the compersition of the fluid and the optimal heat range.
    All have major effects on a heat pipe and how well it works in a given application.

    Yea I hate red pcb; espically on green team cards. Cooler looks nice tho. Gainward/palit and AC make the best aftermarket air coolers in my experience.
