When XFX released the firstHD5670 single slot, many people were sure it wouldn't work. But it was great. Now KFA2 is trying to score on a GTX460 featuring DP + 1 DVI and a single slot full body cooler! Guess what, IT WORK!

I was myself expecting terrible noise and temp from this idea, but according to this GURU3D review it's not that bad. With a single DVI and a DP, this card would be a perfect match for a mid system running a single screen, for folding system or for gaming HTPC!

Will Asus enter the game?

neat idea, but im not a big fan. looks beefier with a 2 slot config. if you see our upcoming DirectCu2 design, we are actually going 3 slot (2.5 physical card) its just beefier

Did you just dis a unique design because it wasn't big enough? *sigh* It's no wonder enthusiasts have to beg and plead to get new SFF parts.

I'd just shell out the money for 2 or 3 slots. I'd be paranoid about the smaller space generating more heat, personally.

I'm not really worried about the cost so much. I like to build a compact systems that are very portable and perform well. I've been moving to progressively smaller cases with each of my last builds and I want to go smaller. It doesn't have to be top of the line but it needs to be decent.

And you don't really worry about heat with an appropriate design. As long as the heat is going out of the case then it doesn't really matter how you achieve it.
