- Lower idle power usage
- Expels hot air out of the case
- No need to buy an aftermarket cooler
So does the 4870, are you thinking of the 4850?

The way heatpipes work, there must be a hot side (evaporater) and a cold side (condenser). The liquid turns into gas on the hot side, the gas travels due to pressure/density change to the cool side, condenses back into liquid, flows back to the hot side, where the cycle starts over again. This happ...

Apart from using a PCIe slot instead of AGP there is really no difference in modern cards using ATI or nVidia shipsets, concerning slot and dual head. The terms used for dual head by the companys are the same no matter how they connect (AGP/PCIe) And after having used dual head cards from 2000 till ...

If the CFM of the intake (front) fan is lower than the combined CFM of all the exit fans (Case, PSU, whatever blowholes) it will actually work as an air-brake as compared to no intake fan.

A front fan will, probably, give give a "fan cone" towards the standard HD-cage position tho.
