Or is there one on the way?

I stopped looking at Thermalright back when I had the Ultra120Extreme, and now they went and done that monstrosity for the 480 cards. Is there something else on the horizon?

Well, the simple answer is that the GTX 480 gives off a **** ton of heat. It can't have a tidy cooling solution like the Radeon cards. :p

If you want something better than Nvidia's stock cooler (which is beastly, already) you have to go EXTREME beastly!!! :headexplode:

You mean like this? I really do love this card, but I know I should have waited for the refresh.
