Four slots?? So utterly impractical, that despite its amazing performance, I'd say it's a Bronze.

Enjoyable review.
I suppose calling it the "Heat Sucker" instead of Dracula is out of the question?

Seriously the size is in the "if you need this performance, you will find a way".
Twin card usage seems unlikely. no, really..

160 watt video card seems a curious choice. Any ideas on how performance will scale with increasing wattage? I know, real world considerations.

So I see a cooler that seems capable of competing with some CPU coolers.
Cries out for a window case, too.
Brings confidence and quiet option to your GPU experience.

May be in the if you have to ask category.

Thanks for the review. Encouraging to know someone would design and produce this.
Cheers Walter

Thanks!
It is really a solution for single video card.
Unless you have a really big case, so you can use a smaller cooler on first VGA and this one on the second.

I could get one on the 1st video card but certainly not the second one not even in my RV02 case why is it that they don't go outward towards the side of the case instead of getting fatter get wider and thiner

They claim compatibility with Radeon HD5770, but I seriously doubt there's enough clearance towards the back plate on those boards...
