    there is a difference between sucking hot air, and sucking NO air.

    The foam piece is positioned so that the intake would not draw a lot from the hot zone. Well it seems like that for me.:)

    Attaching foam to direct air ? I wont believe that one. I think its just because a lot of computer cases now dont use screws for slot cards but have some fancy locking plates and they (specially the cheapo cases) tend not to keep everything as they should (90 degree gfx/mobo angle) hence a piece of foam just to help you position (NOT HOLD IT) the card properly.

    Hmm, lots of foam theories, when W1zzard said in the review that it's for SLI not to short back of the card with front.

    It's not really a new concept, NB coolers have had similar things as well. One uses zip-ties in the corners as insulators for not shorting GPU.

    Man, what is the actual RPM of that Delta fan on 100%? I can imagine somewhere around 5000-6000RPM. IDLE with 100% fan on 5000+ RPM? It must be 55+ dbA at this particular fan setting.

    I have 3 deltas and their 4000RPM. If the GTX480 sounds like a delta, then all i can say is "fail".
