Not completely, there is a vent out the side at the very rear just below the crossfire connections. Not sure why it is there, but it does indeed expell hotness into the case

That should be the XFX reference model. Only supposed to exhaust out the back. Most of it is quite sealed up, except the area around the PCI-E power connectors (usually can't be helped) and a small vent near the bracket where the Crossfire connectors are.

As it stands, it appears all XFX 6970s use the reference cooler, thus exhaust externally.

The 6970 reference cooler blows 25% of the heat right back in to the case. They did this to allow more video out options. Anyone who tells you that the reference cooler is 100% exhaust has been mislead.

Well thats dissapointing, considering I only need 1 connection that makes me sad I'd have to take in 20% of the heat back in cause of that

Here's a post that talks about it a bit. If you look at the pic right at the end of the heatsink there is a piece of plastic that guides the air out the side.
