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

Huh? They tested all the cards in their tests the same way. If it's relatively louder than another card in their tests, then that's a fact you can take to the bank.

Subjectively, if you find it to be bearable or can't notice the difference between it and your old card, that's fine, but doesn't make reviewers wrong.
