    I think it looks very nice :)

    I'm tired of CGI anime girls and flames. This looks neat and professional.

    That'd be great for 3x SLI. Instead of having a brick of cards with a millimeter between each, they'll all have breathing room.

    Id like to see how it performs first, Galaxy non-reference coolers aren't the greatest. Lots of copper is def a plus.

    Id like to see some single slot 280s.

    Edit: I just thought of this. What are the clocks?

    This look's really nice, a little too late though, i wish they start making pure copper coolers.

    Not everyone overclocks. Furthermore its using a vapor chamber which is just a huge heatpipe. You cant compare this to nvidia's reference coolers which just use a heatpipe-heat isnt spread properly,in this its spread to all the fins and with enough air moving past its not hard to see how it could run in a safely. Besides the GTX260+'s doesnt even run that hot, furthermore its a die shrunked GPU. Think G80 and G92.

    would have been better if they used solid state power phases to allow for the vapor chamber to be larger.

    I was thinking maybe lower. Sacrifice clock to reduce heat.
