Disadvantages:
Need to cool Ram / MOSFETS separately.
Can be harder to plumb in multiple GPUs.
Less e-peen.
Okay, it sounds really good that I'll get a lot better core temps, I don't care about what others think, as the only reason to cool my GPU separately is to get rid of the REALLY loud fans to keep it under 80c while I'm gaming.

I am going to be getting another 6970 for crossfire, but removing the stock cooler will make it take up a lot less space anyways, so I'm not too worried about that.

The only thing that worries me is cooling the Ram / MOSFETS, are they really necessary? And if so would it require much more than a side fan from the case?
