Default AMD 390X cooler?

See the following:
Overclock3D :: Article :: AMD Radeon R9 390X cooler leaked :: AMD Going AIO?

Original Source:

This is what is believed to be the 390X cooler. Note the two holes for an AIO. Asetek apparently won a contract to supply an undisclosed vendor some units - most likely AMD.

It suggests one of the following:

1. AMD was either unwilling or unable to design a cool and quiet air cooling solution.
2. It was cheaper to buy an AIO versus a good air cooling unit.

I just hope that we don't end up in a situation where the next gen of cards is like ... Fermi.

There are rumors floating around the web of a >500mm^2 GPU. Assuming some advances in performance per square mm, the next generation would be a pretty impressive die.

AIO tells me one thing only... It'll be ludicrously hot.
