Well I won't have all my parts here for another couple weeks anyway, so that gives me time to find some help. :)

Better than my EVGA Hybrid?

Absolutely not. In fact, this may just be a publicity stunt, as it's very unlikely this card would perform any better than a standard air-cooled card. The claim that it performs almost as well as having an external 240mm radiator is simply absurd

Yeah I think it just means it will be quieter.

Sure, in the sense that it doesn't really need much of a pump. But it won't be quieter than an air cooler, and yet it's unlikely to perform much better, while cost a lot more.
