Yeah, but MikeC had a pre-release card if memory serves me right. The retail cards have had an updated Bios since then. Honestly, these cards don't run any hotter than my previous GTX280. Fan speed is also not any louder.
I ran Metro 2033 for over an hour on auto fan settings. Temps didn't go any higher than high 70's. I set up EVGA Precision and it logs the hottest temps that the card gets. Also the highest Fan speed was 66% and not audible at all. At least not over the CPU fans I have using a fan controller.
