That is rather pessimistic. Watercooling and overclocking three cards would yield much higher frames and higher benches. Four has no relevance unless you are folding. People that like to spend large sums of money care about performance too. There are always the ignorant too. Like those who buy a 5970 to run one 1680x1050 LCD.
Either way, you'd have to over volt the cards to enable overclocking that returns any significant or noticeable performance difference, and then you'd be resorting to better cooling.
But how exactly do you fit full face water blocks onto multiple GPUs that are slotted in each adjacent PCI-E lane?
That would be a seriously long motherboard.
