Re: Fermis all over the place
Yes, the 480's fan is quieter than the 5870 at the same speeds but it could go much higher. On a single card setup, it won't matter but if you place another card for SLI or PhysX under a 480, the temps rise way up. On my setup, 1 card will often go up to 90% in order to keep the temp around 90C or so. At 90%, the 480 is way louder than whatever speed my 5870 ran at.
