I didn't mean to insult you.  I'm just shocked that the #1 selling
platform right now doesn't ship parts with proper cooling already
attached.  Think of it more as astonishment that you (and others) put up
with stuff like that.  You -should not- have to attach 3rd party fans to
cards in order just for them to run in the environment for which they
were designed.

I perfectly understand that, when you need a machine running, you need a
machine running, regardless of what you need to do to it.  I was more
reflecting on the "Wow, people have to do this these systems/components
just to make them behave like the manufacturers claim, and they STILL
buy more?  I wish I had customers like that." aspect of it.
