    Looks like a row of 40mm jobbies. Should be nice and loud

    if it was usable in quad sli it'd be horrible, its obviously been designed by waterblock companies so that if anyone buys one by accident they invest in watercooling immediately.
    This is not the signature you are looking for.

    lol, look at the difference in presentation quality between Asus and Gigabyte (assuming the Gigabyte pictures were released by Giga and not some joe-schmo)

    definitely a weird fan decision on the gigabyte model, that would definitely be like a toddler screaming.

    I believe the Asus design is much better. Should be quieter and achieve similar clocks, not to mention its not as thick.

    The GBT has potential for far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far better temps. Especially if you ditch those fans and duct a high power 120mm fan or two into there.

    It looks like you need something to support the card though. Look how much lower one end of the card is compared to the end where the card is screwed in. Too much weight handing of that card methinks.

    I'm guessing it hasn't been released yet as most of the time aftermarket PCBs come out a month or two+ after reference designs.
