one other tidbit, the Vapor X coolers/Toxic on the 4870s were steel.(not alum or copper). These coolers look like the Toxic cooler thats been modified, I hope these are better made.
Here is a shot of the poorly designed Toxic cooler from a 4870(notice the heat tubes smashed flat)
They have to flatten the heat pipes in order to have more surface area of the heatpipes exposed to the heatsource.
