    I must say the size is a lot more manageable compared to what they have on the market for VGA cooling.

    looks like an accelero s1 to me
    but thinner (single slot?... looks like it)
    and more heatpipes.
    and ATI.

    They've really cut the height of the cooler as the HR03 takes up a stupid amounts of slots even without mounting a cooler on top of the heatsink.

    I wonder how the small fins will cope with getting rid of the heat? Looks good though. Single slot is great :)

    Yeah it would be interesting to see how it would perform on something like 3 cards right next to each other, or even the top card when 2 are right next to each other.... Because you wouldn't be getting much airflow through the ones right next to each other:confused:

    Dont think this will beat the HR-03, looks very compact maybe good for ppl who does triple SLI :thumbup:

    That is seriously cool! No pun intended.

    I wonder how well it does? I mean that is a bucket load of surface area, room for two 92mm fans and 6 heat pipes... it's gotta do pretty well, right?

    I wonder if it comes with sinks for the memory chips?

    A big step compared to their previous design. Plus it will keep the card and memory chips cool.

    I"m sure it would, maybe some very low-line heatsinks.

    It looks good. I like it.
    Does anyone know if it has been released to the market?
    I want to get 1 for my 3850.Try it out. Since stock cooler is crap.

    cant seem to find a review on it yet, is it being released in aus.
    Id like to give it a shot on my 8800GT and see how it compares temp/noise wise vsing the duorb. 2x Nexus or Noctuas should make that thing cool and quiet :thumbup:

    I bet the performance is nothing short of terrible with no fans. Add fans and it'll be like a 3 slot cooling solution anyway. What gets me is why companies don't make a drop in fan/shroud replacement for the GTS/GTX style coolers. The radial fan setup is the best for size, and the stock heatsinks are rather beefy already.

    I wonder if it would fit 8800Gt (G92), I reckon these wont sell for less than 75 bucks at the very least :(

    would it do well in a poor airflow environment though?

    it will fit an 8800GT G92, price wise i hope its no more than 60. considering additional fans are required.
    Im either going to mod my duorb and decrease the voltage or grab one of these depending on how much better they are compared to the duorb
