What's wrong with a 3-slot cooler?

Not much. 3 slots should theoretically dissipate more heat and emit less noise. The only possible issue I can imagine anyone having is the weight.

Better fix that GAP for the 680 Asus.... mad.gif

What's the point of this if they'll make it stupid loud? I mean really, what's the point of huge coolers if they'll simply run the fans at top speed like idiots? rolleyes.gif

There's good cooling and then there's overkill. I get most overclockers are deaf but still....

So they went with an hybrid direct die/heatpipe design?

It should outperform the old one, considering there is now more dissipation surface.

My comment was based on the fact that a LOT of people, at least in enthusiast groups, run more than one card, and don't always want to invest in WC solutions.
And unless one feels the need to invest in a fairly pricey mobo with a ton of x16 slots, a 3 slot cooler presents problems by wasting existing slots by covering them.

Agreed, I don't know how people are loving the new one, I think the old one looks pretty damn good, but that gap on the new one... ugh.

Can you even see it in a case?

I would since I have an inverted ATX case wink.gif On the other hand I don't have a window on my case (thankfully) rolleyes.gif
