This is a custom design from HIS, it may be to keep costs down and since pcie 3.0 is still in its infancy, this card won't loose out by not having a 3.0. Amd said a 7990 was coming but they killed it, hence why PC and HIS have made these 7970x2 cards. They are competing against PC, so a slightly lesser price could be a deciding factor for some thumb.gif

I would say a waterblock is much heavier. Also, Arctic Cooling did a 6990 cooler which was three slots and massive:



I didn't hear any 6990 snapping in half due to heavy cooler (or even a water block). Still, there are gpu support brackets out there or you can make one yourself thumb.gif

Probably going to be over priced as usual... cheaper to buy 2 single 7970s..... also pretty late in the game to be releasing a 79xx series card, 8xxxx series with new GCN update around the corner
