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

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
I have a Zotac GTX 480 with the latest .02 bios revision. I've even changed the TIM on it as per comments in other threads..nothing. My card idles at 83 C with dual monitors, fans spinning right now at 59% and nothing but mozilla open. It's why I've kept saying, some people are getting better temps then others, dont know why, but it's happening.
