    Might have better temps if they used aluminium, it's about 15x more efficient as a heatsink :p

    Still, as long as it's quiet I can look past the Engrish. Ugly though.

    Doesn't look too bad imo, though I'm not sure I like it much either. Should run quite cool.

    The steel looks to just be a plate for the led mountthat shrouds the top of the heatsink. The heatsink fins are made of Alu so would expect the heatsink core that touches the gpu to be Alu also.

    Copper would of been better of course, or silver even!!!

    That heatsink looks like it was planned to fit a gtx480 by the way it overhangs the back of the card.
