I really hope they put out a WC'd version, because it looks as if no blocks are on the horizon.

Now if that's a heatspreader, then why not give it more surface area by making it ribbed? My god does that card look hawt, it deserves some CaptnKill smilies!!

Dual redundant server power supplies to the rescue,or maybe this one,but it'll still be a close to it's limits as hard as it is to believe...

Heat spreaders should be flat. If they made it ribbed it'd make less contact area for the heat sink (unless the bottom of the heat sink was ribbed the opposite way... but thats just getting over complicated).

I'm still amazed at the size of that thing... heat spreader or not... thats enormous.

I know that PCP&C is single-rail, but all their stuff is way overpriced. Even their tri-rail PSU's which have fewer amps than the Silverstones are 200-250$ more.
