While the 8800 GT has been widely lauded for being an amazingly fast product for a very attractive price, complaints about the heat it creates as well as how loud the fan can spool up has spawned a 3rd party cooling market to address those needs. EVGA is now showing a dual slot cooling solution on the 8800 GT that should address this burgeoning market. They also up the core clock on the 8800 GT to a nice and even 700+ MHz to boot.
While it is a two slot design, it is distinctly different from the cooler included on the new 8800 GTS (G92).
EVGA even gave the back some attention with a heatpipe based heatsink. It probably needs it considering it runs at a blistering 700+ MHz core (other clock speeds are not released at this time).
