Good idea overall but as usual, these fan will probably be hell noisy under load. Like the XFX 5670 but maybe a faster fan. Let's wait some result.

the one downside i see is the rushed cooling solution. an elegant idea would be a mid or rear fan, with external exhaust. not that these output a truck load of heat, but still.

Rear exhaust on a single slot card is impossible. So this is likely the best way.
