You can't say that without expecting a response.
You are comparing an under clocked card. Atx spec or not, the 5970 is what it is (2x5870) and should be clocked as such. Very few of these two are not going to be overclocked.
Anyway, (as far as most in this price range are concerned) stock cooling performance potential is pretty much what should be benched.
