I just noticed that Thermalright's compatibility sheet mentions need to couple that with an additional VRM heatsink on 5850 and 5870 cards. So it seems that there will be no VRM heatsinks included in the box. Also there is much greater compatibility with Nvidia cards than those from ATI.

Building a heatsink that is compatible with a lot of different products means a lot of compromise. It might be an ok cooler, but I am not in...

its pretty disappointing really when you consider how much those vrm heatsinks can cost too! think thermalright need to go back tot he basics and just design a simple cooler that fits in the double slot width and performs well.
