If the cooler is anything like the accelero extreme (for the 4870x2...don't know if one out for the 5970 yet), then its a darn good cooler and the 92mm fans run silent at around 2000rpm.

I'd just rip off their fancy air cooler, slap a 5970 waterblock on it (hoping the card layout is still reference), watercool it, and overclock it even more.  Bwahahaha!

Oh, and delivery 2-3 weeks after they get your first born son.  Hard enough to find a regular 5970 in stock anywhere.

Your first born male child, I agree nvidia screwed the pooch with the 4xxx line...   My SLI 285s already ran hot I can't imagine a pair of those suckers going to need a second air conditioner

Holy shit!

 

And it still will probably run cooler and use less e- than fermi.  I love Nvidia but I really think they dropped the ball on the 4XX series
