Asus to passively cool Radeon X1600 XT

The Register has the goods on a passively-cooled Radeon X1600 XT graphics card from Asus. Rather than mount the heat sink on the front of the card, the EAX1600XT SILENT/TVD/256M pipes heat into a massive radiator located on the back of the card. Moving the radiator to the back of the card should allow it to be more effectively cooled by a case's rear exhaust fan; however, it may also throw more heat at a system's processor.
