Default Re: GTX 480 fan is NOT LOUD! What's up with these reviewers?

People are just reporting what they are experiencing. There is no huge conspiracy to spread misinformation. It's laughable that you guys keep writing off person after person who buys one of these cards and then has the same experience people have been reporting for over a week now.

What about when reviewers go back after their reviews and say things like the heat and temps were "a non issue for these upgraded retail cards" and "at the end of the day the heat and noise complaints are complete non-issues"? Those are quotes from a Hardware Canucks video. You can't explain that away with people trying to deceive or justify anything, can you?
It has been posted several times that there has been an updated bios for the Fermi cards. It makes the Fans run at a higher RPM so the temps don't get as high as the early review samples. Some people around here, just choose to ignor it and think we are behind some sort of conspiracy theory. It kind of makes me laugh.
