5C my you know what; a high flow bracket isn't gonna help reduce the heat generated by the GF100 chip; a better cooling system is need; maybe something similar to Sappire's Vapor-x chamber HSF.

The EVGA bracket has slots around the DVI ports and next to the mini-HDMI port.

Also the EVGA has 11 holes versus the 10 in that one (not like 1 is going to be a huge difference)

I say let Nate tell us the verdict before making any judgments.

I have two on the way for my 480s.

I've found that case air flow can make a significant difference in the GTX series temps. By switching from a CoolerMaster Cosmos 1010 with a 120mm side fan to a CoolerMaster HAF932 my Metro2033 temps went from 92-94C down to 84-86C on the top card.

If these brackets work as advertised, I should get down to the 79-81C range. Not bad for $159. total- not much more than the cost of one waterblock and I don't have the hassles/added expense of water.

If they don't work, or can't give me more than the case already has, I'm still pretty happy with running the 480s at full load in the mid 80s. My philosophy on high end graphics has always been that you build a system around the properties of the graphics, not settle for lesser graphics.

Just got mine today... Will start testing it real quick to see what it does.

Also the USPS print out on my box shows it took $2.07 to get it from zip 92821 California to Missouri in a 6x6x3 box.
