So why couldn't they do a full review?

Correct. The back may end up with a plating in time. But the entire cooling design is set around pulling air in from the bottom and top of the card. So putting something in the middle can constrict airflow. I was messing around with having a 9800GTX + as a PhysX card and noticed the tempature rise significantly. And the 9800GTX + isnt that hot of a card.
