Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 470/480" thread
Yeah, but it's hard to believe the ES samples would've been much different than the retail versions. Nvidia would've known to expect a lot of flack from the reviews saying how hot the card would run. They wouldn't have allowed that to happen.
I think we're just seeing some folks who know how to cool their cases reporting lower temps. Reviews usually show the worst case scenario so as to protect the buyer. It's a "here's what could happen."
