Here's my favorite pic, looks like they put a real heatsink on this, if it works half as good as it looks well that'll make alot of us smile :)

toms :rolleyes: says the big coolers aren't really that effective and are REALLY REALLY LOUD.

take that with a grain of salt. (or a whole carton)

i see that its copper.. which can't be too bad. the fan contraption may not be a real good design though. dunno. way to early to tell.

Time will tell, but i can tell you I don't listen to Tom since that Innovotech Vs Swiftech roundup, you know the one where Tom forgot to use the fan ;) :beer:

Is there going to be a low end card? I have a Radeon 8500LE, but I want to switch to Nvidia for the actual linux support *spits on ATI*

Yeah, to me the hsf "looks" like it can handle the job. But what caught my eye was the thermal interface pads that they have between the ram and heatsink. See those little plae blue thingies, yeah they look like they are gonna be heat traps to me. I have the Gf4 ti-4600 evga.com with ACS2 cooling and its got those crappppppy rubber thermal (insulators) pads on it too. If they are gonna spend $400 mill on this card can't they come up with a way to cool the ram without the little rubber pads? I mean come on...Intel & AMD don't need no stinkin' rubber pads for thier cooling solutions!!

Well according to AMD thermal pads are better then thermal grease. The little representative at the reality check tour spewed the following information:

1. Themal pads are best, thermal grease sucks because after a time period of ~ 1 year it all flows away and leaves the core with air spaces.

2. Artic silver will short out and kill your chip.

3.All copper heatsinks are to heavy for the socket, and do not cool as well as an aluminum heatsink with copper slug. He thought the absoulte best heatsink was some asian brand thing that looked alot like that doctor thermal extreme thing, decent heatsink but no slk-800 :).

So maybe nvidia believes the same things as amd, all I know is I like my sk-7 with as3 :)

i'm sure there will be at least two iterations of this card. the nv30 top of the line and then something about the performance level of the 9700 probably.
