My System Specs

Question fan

Nice review, as always, and I like the added care taken with the detailed dis-assembly pic's of the whole card.

The overall performance of a GTX 670 is very impressive, along with the PCB; which brings me to a point about the "added" HS fan. Are there any obvious reason(s) why, nVidia did not use a top-down fan much like in the stock GTX 560 (or GTX 690 for that matter), instead of the (toilet) blower-fan, which seems like a very poor after-thought for such a wonderfully short PCB?

I know all the after-market vendors are lining up to do their bidding, but still, if I wanted a penis extender I get a 680 or a 690.
