    Gareth - just the man to clarify:
    This card requires 2 slots, and is referred to as a dual slot card, would 'double slot' not be more appropriate?

    "Dual" is a synonym of "double" - the two may be used interchangeably.

    I love the idea of hybrid coolers like these. I'd love to see them appearing more often, at least on the high-end of the range.

    It is such a shame they're not allowed to modify the design of the card. It's still a reference PCB under the cooler. :(

    Seems like a bit of a waste unless you're looking to w/c it. It's not like that waterblock is coming for free, so I don't see what sense it really makes if you're not planning to w/c it.

    If its anything like my 780 Posiedeon the difference in cost isn't that much over a standard aftermarket cooler. Plus it allows still like pre installing testing and if your pump fails you don't need to be without a PC, ect. I think its an amazing idea personally.
