Cool, looks nice. Nothing worse than coolers than become useless when you upgrade..

I think the real issue now will be whether or not the heatsink will have clearance for other components and things like RAM and VRM heatsinks for future board designs. Even if it'll mount, it won't necessarily fit.

I think the bigger issue is actually being able to get one within Canada and not having to order from the states..
I couldn't find a megalahems in Canada so I had to settle for a U-120E. =\

Bac order now because the new is coming soon.
What would be nice is to prove the fan monting kit to place a fan on the side of the card for CF or sli config.

I am excited for this. IT makes me glad I sat on the fence re: a new cooler for my old 9800GTX+

I REALLY hope they are good about releasing new mounts for new cards (when needed). IF they don't, I still won't have a problem, as metal may be my favorite material to work with!

I hope this works wonders with a 5870. Looks much more attractive then the stock cooler imo.
