Nice OC btw
I don't think it's fair to say that. Hardocp always tells it like it is and even they concluded that the 480 was a significantly hotter and noisier card. Of course, noise is all subjective. I have friends that returned a Xbox 360 because of the noise and there are others who claim that they don't hear anything.
