Again, lack of availability and pricing should deter from providing a Gold Award.

You write:
"... this cooler will take three expansion slots of your case, meaning that your video card will use a total of four (yes, four) expansion slots."
Four slots is required to fit the hardware. To feed the fans some air the fifth slot needs to be fairly clear too.

DeepCool claim compatibility to Radeon HD5770, but I doubt it. I think the heatpipes will interfere with the DVI sockets, since the GPU is positioned a bit closer to the rear end of those cards.

Changing the card would require a re-run of all tests to date, and the previously tested coolers aren't available!
Since the test is comparative rather than absolute, the absolute amount of heat produced is fairly irrelevant as long as it's the same for all tests.
