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.
Eck. Really? I'm running dual monitors as well.

I wonder if its just a driver issue. Aero shouldn't be putting that much load on the card.
