Re: GTX 480 fan is NOT LOUD! What's up with these reviewers?
I've noticed that Vsync has a huge effect on fan noise and heat. When I'm just gaming with Vsync on, the 5870s hardly go above 80 degrees with minimal fan noise. However, during benching, either the cards will hit 90 F and throttle or I'll have to use a customized profile to drive up the fans to really loud levels.
