    It better not. That thing is huge & heavy. Plus it defeats the purpose of the single slot design.

    a lot of people like it that though, cause you're not paying for a shitty stock cooler and you get superior aftermarket cooling mounted and included with the product and its warranties etc. and saves you the trouble of going out and getting a new cooler and then mounting it etc,

    I just don't like them on single slot cards. I have one on a 3870 & it weighs the card down alot, but it is about 15-20C cooler than stock so it wins perfectly for that card. The 3850 as it is, gets hot as hell compared to the stock 3870 so I guess it needs it more. I wished they would have designed that cooler more like the toxic or sapphire single slot 3870s.

    It doesn't have the dual orb. Good card though I have one.
