Yeah i basically waited too. I have a 5850 but was curious about the 480. I ordered a second 5850. My 5850 OC to 940/1140 easily and the temps are about 66C-70C at that speed (from 760/1050). I'am pretty sure i could go higher if i could use Volt Tweak, but i bought the Powercolor PCS+ (awesome cooler, like the Vapor-X). Fan never get more than 44%
