Third party GPU coolers such motherblard the blorb would have a really hard time going down there, to connecting to the last fan header which is by the port 80 debugger.

Quake 3 becomes more card-limited as we move up the resolution scales, meaning that scores will become closer and closer. I personally think this is a good idea, it shows that a motherboard manufacturer cares about the way their product looks.
