I dont know much about the history of these http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=26214
but its looking pretty good, supposively sli compatible as well, and at $70 a pop, it could be a great overclocking tool
 
ill see if justin has any comments on these, if what artic is claiming is even mostly true, they are pretty awesome and very quiet

That will be a lot of heat in the case.  With very good case cooling it should not be too bad.  It says it can handle up to 250 watt TDP, so looks like GTX 480 would still be hot. lol
The most important factor is VRM temps, and they don't talk about that, so will be interesting to see how well it cools them.

yea i was thinking about the logistics of it and blowing all the heat straight up doesnt make too much sense to me... seems like if you were going to do SLI in a 932 your best bet would be:
 
noctua cooler pointing up out the top
 
fermi with this on it pointing up
 
bottom fermi with stock cooling
 
the more i look at it the less practical it seems, especially for sli
