Check the pics out on Newegg:
It is showing a copper HSF instead of the alluminum HSF like the one I have on my BFG 7800GTX. Has anyone else seen this and confirmed this?
they did this with the 6800gt as well, adding an additional fan

I wonder if this new HSF will perform any better. If so I want one.
i heard it is loud as a mofo!!

There quiet for a while. After about a year the fans on my hs wore out and started to rattle. Instead of rma'ing it (lifetime warrenty) i just got a new hs. They are good coolers thoe. I recommend taking it off and checking out the surface thoe... with mine they accidently mounted the copper plate wrong. 1 side got a nice lap job the other did not... and some how the non nice side ended up where it shouldnt have been..... on the gpu.
Up to you.
