    Wow, the cooling system is complex! Its not only cools GPU and memory, but also the voltage regulators. Thats mean all cooling system now cant be used in 8800 series

    true, my x800gto also has a speaker on it, so that it beeps when I forget to connect the molex, and then displays the message on the screen.
