sub zero or get out msi.
Sadly, like the Classified and KINGPIN, more will probably be bought and ran on air than anything else. Having a good air cooler prevents forums from filling up with the inevitable post about how "my card is garbage" and "I had a reference card which was better." Also those post where they admit they know the card is meant for water or LN2 but then use the fact that it comes with an air cooler as an excuse to complain.
At least they got the bios right (that is nvidia's fault), a switch is all you need to enjoy your card. They won't be hearing complaints from people who bought the card with their head in the sand, but NEED to have an official bios or their card is a failure.
