    Is it just me or does that look like it will take up 3 slots?

    cooler looks familiar

    very good cooler infact, very very good, the prolimatech seems a touch better and a lot more adapatable due to the nature of the fan mounting bracket, fan can be on top of the sink(or underneath in a normal case) or along the side so one fan bracket can cool a couple of cards in crossfire.

    Even though I wouldn't buy Nvidia at the moment its good to see someone using a DECENT 3d party cooler on their cards. The Vapour X is fairly crap, as our most 3rd party coolers in 58xx series cards. THe Zalman/Prolimatech will offer temps of 25-30C idle and 40-45C load, with fans on FAR quieter than stock, basically silent with a 30-40C drop under load.

    My 5850 at 1.3v and 1050Mhz core stays at 43C load with the Prolimatech with fans on at a level I can't hear(two antec 92mm adjustable fans on their low setting).

    Compared to the Vapour X and the like, they blow them away, admitedly, they are bigger, but the vast majority of people do not use crossfire/trifire/sli/triple sli/quadfire/quad sli, so a tripple slot cooler, well, 98% of cards sold would fit fine with triple coolers while being silent and incredibly low temp so less failures. Triple slot should be STANDARD and hotter dual slot varients should be "xfire/sli" brand cards for those that have to have something thinner.

    Triple slot is more expensive though so adds to the basic cost. Plus microATX boards will struggle, as will those with inconveniently placed PCI slots, for those who need them. I'm not convinced... possibly there should be more availability of triple slot cards though, the jury's out on that one from me. Personally I'd have no use for them though, I'm steadily replacing all my dual-slot cards for single-slot ones so I can fit more in

    Re: News - ZOTAC launches custom GTX 480 and GTX 470 AMP! Edition graphics cards

    Never heard of ZOTAC until last week when I was shopping for a new GFX card which resulted in my choosing on Gainward. And now ZOTAC sounds like something I'd feel safe in buying.

    I think these cards will launch priced about £350-370, the average reference card is £300-320 depending on etailer.
