Default Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 470/480" thread

Just got my EVGA GTX 480 SCs today. Took a few pics while installing them. Currently running some tests. Fan is at 80% in EVGA Precision and fairly audible, but around the same noise as my GTX 280s at 100%. 100% Fan speed on these GTX 480s is vacuum cleaner mode.

At idle, GPU1 temp is at 52C and GPU2 temp is at 36C. This discrepancy is probably because I have dual monitors running right now, and if I remember correctly, on my old GTX 280s, dual monitor mode made my first GPU run at much higher clocks than my second GPU when the two were in SLI. I assume its the same case for these 480s.

Sexy pics. Cropped out some in the first one cuz I accidentally included some personal crap in the shot.

Compared to my BFG GTX 280

Inside my Antec 900 with my ASUS P6T, which forces to the two cards to hump each other cuz 16x is only available in the first two PCIe slots
