Apparently professionals blow the hot air back into their case?!?

I like the stock cooler better, this seems like a downgrade to me.

Seems like that to me too, although I remember reading something on Arctic Cooling's website when the new Accelero coolers came out about how they had found that their DHES (basically, blowing hot air out the back of the case) was actually somewhat ineffective due to a difference in pressure (or something to that effect) causing the fan to have to work harder and make more noise to push the air out.

Would certainly explain the fact that the best GPU coolers in the industry are open-air... Be it a VF700-AlCu or the mammoth VF1000. Thermaltake is really the only aftermarket brand nowadays that produces an air-exhausting GPU cooler, and from what I hear, their reverse model performs better anyway. Not that either of them perform particularly well to begin with :laugh:
