Connectivity wise the output connectors will vary per brand -- ASUS went a little extreme though. You'll get two DVI connectors, one single and one dual-link and then four display port connectors. Combined you could pull of 6-way eyefinity monitor setup. To do that the dual-link DVI connector must be set at single link. There is a switch on the card that can select single link & dual link.
Meanwhile, the triple-slot cooler has two 100mm fans, the housing is very sturdy. The cooling is excellent, the downside however is that the residual heat for the vast majority is exhausted inside your chassis. So be sure you have your chassis airflow under control.
Overall the card remains cooled within very good limits and isn't noisy either. But you'll learn all about that over the next few pages of content. Also note that there are voltage monitoring points available for the enthusiast LN2 crowd.
