Default Re: GTX 480 (825/1100 MHZ) vs. HD 5870 (975/1300 MHz)

Reviewers say one thing, but the actual owners are saying something else. It all boils down to reviews being done in an open enviroment. These cards behave differently, when put in a case. The temperatures are much lower and so is the noise. So far, people are reporting temperatures around 70C or 80C in heavy scenarios. That's quite a jump from the numbers we were told
