As if 6800 cooling isn't sufficient........ how can they tack on that much stuff and it still run hot and how can artic cooling make an improvement. I mean i plan on buying a 6800 but i dunno is stock cooling really that ineficient?

I mainly like the idea that it takes the hot video card air and expells it out the pci slot instead of it going through the rest of the case. The 6800 ultra has this type of setup installed stock from Nvidia. The x800 Xt-Pe does not come stock with this type of cooling setup from ATI but, from aftermarker companies.

i dont think the 6800 cooloers are all copper that is why this would make a difference - also a faster RPM fan on it likely :)
