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

I would not recommend this card to someone running dual monitors until they fix this by doing further underclocking of the card under multimonitors.

Edit: Even when idling not doing no 3d work, the card hovers at the lower 80's.. and i have a case with good airflow and my ambient temp is 75-76 d F.
I just remembered reading somewhere that NVIDIA fixed the high idle temp on dual monitor setup.
Searched the Google and it was LegitReview article where I did see it.
Basically the bios fix was increasing the fan speed but the high idle power consumption is still the same.
The result was idle temp from 85C to 75C reduction.

People are complain g about bad reviews but I think LegitReview was very nice to NVIDIA since the heading of the article is NVIDIA Solves Multi-Monitor Temp Issue on GeForce GTX 480 GPUs
