I love the big dual fan coolers that ASUS is putting on their 580GTX and the AMD 6970. They not only look like they would do a great cooling job they really do.
This ASUS setup makes a single puny squirrel cage fan cooler look positively prehistoric.

do you think its anything original, or have twin frozers been hiding in the woods. evga has been using twin fans on some models for a while as have other manufacturers. even a sparkle card has three fans, as do others. this seems to be non-news.

I don't have a 580, but don't stock ones come standard with a vapor chamber? I personally would prefer that since it would be quieter.

The ideal GPU cooler is one where it cooks me eggs in the morning... I mean those Fermi's do get hot. lol

it would be a bitch to sli as well since they take up 3 slots, I think they kept the vapor.

You can get mobo's that puts 2 slots of space between each pcie x16 slot, or get one of those more expensive mobo's that just have all pcie x16 slots.
