Everyone who is thinking of getting a Palit or Gainward should go to that link, apparently the end consumer Gainward/Palit GTX 460's dont have VRM Heatsinks, while the reviewer units did. This results in crazy high temps on parts of the board and the fan cranking up high and loud.
I have a Palit 460 (running at default clocks, 1400MHz shaders 700MHz memory). it doesn't have the VRM heatsink and the main GPU heatsink appears to be a cheaper material than the review samples. idle: 34C Furmark: 82c. that Furmark temperature does seem to be higher than normal, so I wouldn't trust it at 800MHz!
