Nice. I've got a TwinFrozr GTX260 and the heatsink works really well. What they really need is something for the 480 though.

Smile Press Release

Wow! Perhaps Nvidia should be working more closely with it's manufacturers in the development stage. I most likely would've stayed with Nvidia if they had gotten a better handle on the temps for their reference cards to begin with instead of rushing to push them out because of ATI making them nervous about market share. Keep up the good work MSI!!!

Designing an effective cooler that exhausts all hot air outside the back is very difficult. I'd rather have a better cooler that lets some heat into the case, because anyone who gets one of these cards should have sufficient case airflow to deal with it anyway.

QFT. A fan in the front and a fan in the back and/or top will get rid of heat issues inside of the case.

Talking msi 470 Twin Frozr II AWESOME!

I'm getting 2 of these to replace my XFX 280 SLI, I can't see there being a problem with hot air in the case, I use a HAF case.

But when are they available?... Can't find them anywhere atm.
