    I kind of expected the 470 to be more expensive than that.

    lol no, I didn't. I actually meant what I wrote. :) Just thought it seemed a little less than I imagined it would be. Look at the price difference between that and the 480. I suppose it is all relative to the normal version on OcUK's site.

    so ~£20 off the 480's price and £100 more than the cheapest 470 is a reasonable price to you?

    for maybe £40 more than the 470 AMP! you could get an OCUK 470 + all the stuff you need to cool it

    No, I wasn't thinking of 'reasonable'. Felt sure it would be £400 +. Musn't complain though. :D

    the cooling looks great, even though it looks like it takes too much space.
    wonder what the temps are like.

    Same cooler on a 5870 gives 55c load temps so it's working overtime on a fermi.

    Triple-slot graphics cards...wow. Just wow. Things are getting silly now. How long before the industry moves to watercooling as standard?

    An overclock, albeit a small one, and still 10 degrees lower is pretty cool. That Zalman Cooler is the shiznai. Hopefully they will get the cooler in seperately SOON so we can use it on our sub £500 cards!!
