Default geforce4 4200 OTES and fx 5800

yea, this has been extensively discussed b4....except i just noticed something. i was lookin at ti4200 cards, and noticed the OTES one (can't remember brand). wow....just like fx 5800, takes up two slots, uses external exhaust system.....now, i have a couple of questions. since this is a popular card as i have heard, i don't see anyone complaining about the occupation of another slot with this card. also, the how....HOW...could they not make the fxflow quieter??? obviously, this was quiet enough, and utilized the same principle for cooling. WTH???

Why didn't people really complain about the 2nd slot? Quite simple. Not every card was based off the reference. Since there were about 15 other manufacturers that produced the Ti4200 with a single slotted fan, no one really complained. In the reviews of the OTES they brought up the 2nd slot and that the fan did produce a whine.

You can't compare that to the NV30 5800 Ultra, because every 5800 Ultra was based off the same reference design, besides Leadtek. So when one card is based off the same concept of course people will bring it up all the time because the alternatives wasn't available.
