Admittedly, I do have a few Antec spot fans directly on the cards as well as the case fans.
From what I've seen, that wouldn't put a dent in 1 x 480 in a closed case.
I don't doubt that these cards will shine in an LC environment.
@ Magus - The heat is the single reason I won't buy 480s. I don't care about the power consumption etc but the heat is a major concern, especially if you want to use more than one card (outside of LC of course).
