LOL. Crazy.

What a difference shown in that video. Great find. It's shocking how much longer it takes 5870 to heat up than 480. 1/4 of the way through that test 480 was already at 95c with the fan spinning out of control, and half way in 5870 was still only around 80c and quiet as a mouse by comparison.
