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

That's good nekro, but you're still missing the point. Q's point was about the ambient temps in his office, which you clearly ignored in your hypersensitive venture to defend your 480.

There's no way to get around the power consumption of the 480. It consumes more power than any other single GPU card that Nvidia has put out. Ever. Therefore, even if the fan is good enough to keep the GPU itself cool, that heat has to travel somewhere. And where will it travel? Into Q's office.

Maybe if you actually thought these things out instead of flinging personal attacks you'd avoid looking "silly" yourself.
