I think this is what happens when you try to take a messy technology and make it all nice and pretty and put it in a box. It explodes. Look, I run a nVidia NX6600....this thing has a big copper coil whose diameter is the width of the card and looks like something Tesla invented. It has it's own fan that plugs into the power supply directly....and that's in addition to CPU fan and power supply fan. In true geek style, I keep the covers of my case for air flow.

My PC is basically an "XBox360" in terms of what graphics it can present. Of course, if compressed into a closed plastic box with little or no ventilation, it would cause a fire, meltdown, etc.
