Shouldn't this have been standard?

Such a simple thing, shouldn't they have all been like this stock, or:
1. Anti overclockers
2. More $$ off aftermarket mods
3. Nvidia really didn't think of it?

Why give away what you can make a buck on? Most people won't care about 3 degrees.

It wouldn't make a.difference to me. If you have this card under water, it pretty much is a moot point. A spot cool will most likely give you better temps, anyway.
