if that exposed aluminum is near a case fan, i dont think the intrinsic fan would spin up that much.
I have very good air flow in my case. My 480 fan never exceeds 60%, even after an hour of gaming. It idles at 48 degrees at 44% fan speed. I'm very impressed with mine. It is certainly quieter than my previous 280.
