Custom cooling solutions definitely seem to be the rage. But I am not sure how I feel about the Powercolor brand.
I like the dual coolers and that the hearsink is copper .Actually own a Powercolor HD 5770 . The HD 5770 that I have before pushing it a bit, just wanted to check and reapply the thermal paste.
.After my experience with that card and the OC setting up a fan profile i was comfy with i would consider a card like this from them depending on price.

OMG!!! this is my new dream Graphic Card!!!
looks pretty cool, but i just ordered the Sapphire 6950 reference card cooler edition. I thought about a custom cooler design, but in the end i didnt feel like paying more for it. Plus i have a pretty roomy case so i am guessing i will be ok.
Ill admit it looks sweet, but really i think ill wait till the HD 7000 series, its not as far away as you might think.
I would have to agree with LLeCompte and buy a reference 6950, then add a full-body waterblock to cool the board's GPU.

Do you think the 7000 series will use pci express 3.0? Has anyone actually heard if anyone is testing cards/boards using it? From my understanding they finalized it in November of 2010.
Now you're just mashing it!
Powercolor makes or has made some great cards. I personally have not had 1 so I don't know what there support is like. Either way they seem to have paid great attention to little things in this cooler for the card. That generally pays of pretty well and it sounds like it does.
