    I like how it shoots hot air out the back, and the plain sleek looks are a plus.

    If you're talking red ports, I think they're cosmetic. It's hard to tell in the pic, but either nothing is happening there, or they're intake vents: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_5000_Leaks/images/cooler1.jpg

    I like that Asus box though.. I got a 4890 TOP in that same box style and it was very, very well presented. Separate compartments for everything, kinda like they do with ROG mobos. Glad to see them out the gate with that same packing..

    Looks very awesome! Can't wait to order one!
    And I agree, it does look better without a sticker on it.

    I meant the back of the case.

    I already assumed the 2 red ports were for intake.

    It is too bad someone did not have time to post a review only containing the letters, "O", "M", and "G" types in that order to the 3000 letter limit.

    Yeah, they really did a good job on the cooler. I just wish it didn't have those useless red holes on the back of the card...

    It's up and $379.99!!!!! :eek: Placing order now!



    I wish I could though...:(
    I don't like the sticker on it. And total after shipping comes to $388.49. I think that would be the best deal right now...

    Kinda feel the same way. what gets me if air is coming from the front of the case to that area are you not going get some kind of turbulence as air would be pushed out of those holes too.

    Although it sounds like a good idea to get rid of heat ASAP from the voltage regs. So i guess you would need a good balance of air from the front so it don't stop the cooler kicking the air out of that area.

    Shame they did not arrange the connections on the plate better so they could of had a bigger output too.
     
    skylamer and department76 say thanks.
