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

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.
All I said was in the reviews I have read. They all had the Mic sitting right next to the cards. In real life the Mic would be outside the case. I mean how many people run there systems outside of a case. Of course it would be loud if the Mic is placed right next to the card. It would be on any system pretty much, that was all I was saying.
