Hello everyone. I just recieved my EVGA 8800 GTX and installed it and I notice that theres no hot air being expelled from the rear of card where the vents are. :ouch:  Howevery I did notice that ALL the hot air is being expelled from those long 5 vents shoving all the heat into my case instead of the vents in rear where you plug in the DVI-D cable. What going on?

****UPDATE**** I have removed the thin plastic film from around the top of card.

check the temps

The 169.04 drivers are installed, RivaTuner 206 shows my temp to be 56c core at idle 100% fan speed ambiant 44c. I know these temps are good, but I thought all the hot air was spposed to be expelled out the back of cooler/card rather than inside the case. More air is expelled through the 5 long grooves rather than the rear of cooler.
