Default Eventual HD 6990 cooler? Or fantasy?

Just want to share this, whatever that is....seems like a 3dstudiomax prototype of the dual GPU HD6990?

YouTube - New AMD HD 6990

might be just a rumor....

Better have a good case intake fan pulling in LOTS of cool air for that Xfire setup.

i question this design. with the fan after the heatsink, adding dust to the equation will not be a good result. sure, a good spray of compressed air will help getting most of it out, but what if ou get that caked on stuff?

Damn this is nice and looking sweet but, if the fan is hidden like that won't it be noisier? Let wait for the real one and see what AMD can give us:)

Maybe I am missing something but squirrel cage blowers don't work like that. Blowers don't pull air from one side and through it out the sides. It needs a hole out the side to pull the air in.

That's what I thought to. Pretty sure this is fake or something.
