What is the FPO/Batch number for the cpu?
How long have Gigabyte been using Zalman coolers on their cards?
i'm not sure how long Gigabyte has been using Zalman Coolers, but i think it's a brilliant move on their behalf. they don't have to pay for their own R&D on the heatsink design and create a manufacturing process for it, they just outsource, save money and throw a very nice cooler on the card from the factory. here's a closeup of the processor used in this build. i can't wait til tomorrow when i get my PSU/HSF in.
