Just because its hot doesnt mean it will make your PC hotter.

Cards that consume higher wattage can be cooler but they will produce more heat. They just spread the heat faster.

Its an exchange, low noise for high temperatures.

And if the fan stop working the GPU will shutdown.

In theory yes, In practice mmmm not so much. This is NOT a stab at ATI, but at video cards in general. Both ATI and NVIDIA need to start looking at ways of making their chips cooler. Their partners NEED to make sure they implement halfways decent cooling solutions.

Can't find it anymore, but not so long ago, me and a friend saw a clip on Youtube with a ATI Radeon (X800 I think). The guy in the clip put the card in WITHOUT(!) cooling at all, except for an open cabinet. He ran some 3D application/s, and got 128 deg. Celsius!! (That's where it flattened out). NO problems at all! If I remember correct, there was a cut, stepping some time forward in time. Still running :))))

My jaw dropped back then ;)
