1: no one but i guess thats what it sounded like

You said it was black and blue so that's where it came from.

What I would personally like to see is all the heat pipes hidden within the shroud and maybe some sort of interchangeable colour system similar to what corsair has with their new fans. It would allow a user to create a tidy looking system with a nice matching colour scheme.

Just looked it up the now and it looks better than i thought. I wish more non reference cards looked neater at the top/side (where you can see from a windowed case).

One of the main reasons i won't buy ASUS products, they are stubborn with their designs.

my .02 about the cu-mini design.

 

 

 

i want those fans and the heatsink on a fullsized card. it's obvious to me that the temperatures are not significantly different on the 670 mini as opposed to their normal model. yes it is louder and slightly hotter, but its 1 fan against 2. imagine if the heatsink and fans were incorporated into a fullsized model and consider how well that would work.

why change something that functions well?

You could say that about the motherboards yet they change it every five seconds and the colour scheme also, a gpu design is cheaper to change so why not do it.

Personally I think it's ugly as hell.
