Default New single PCB reference design?

Apparently, Nvidia has switched over to a new single PCB reference design for the new GTX295's. I wouldn't have much of an issue with that except for that it looks worse and the new cooling solution is trash. Anyone know where to find the old dual PCB reference design cards in black? I think Tiger has a few Red Editions left and I would get one if I had to. (new, preferably. I don't like e-baying hardware.)

From the reviews I've seen, the cooler on those things work just as well as the dual PCB version.

Check out the heat sinks on this one: Inno3D GeForce GTX 295 Platinum (Single PCB)

Thanks, AR . I wasn't so sure about them because of the cooler. Alot of people are saying they see temps that are really high because of the air being circulated in the case rather than being pushed out through the PCI vent. But if that's what the HS and HSF combo look like, I'll be satisfied and just purchase a backplate for looks ;D.

The old GTX 295 vents hot air into the case as well. The whole GTX 2xx series do it AFAIK.
