ASUS has been using their Direct CU II cooler on several other models before. This card uses the dual-slot version, a triple slot version is available on high-end cards.
The card requires two slots in your system.
Display connectivity is two DVI ports and one mini-HDMI port (adapter included). Due to NVIDIA's display output logic design you are limited to two active displays at any time. AMD GPUs have a more flexible configuration and allow up to six active outputs at the same time.
An HDMI sound device is included in the GPU, too. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible which includes HD audio and support for Blu-ray 3D movies.
You may combine up to two GTX 560 cards from any vendor in a multi-GPU SLI configuration.
