66% is a low setting for fan, my 280GTX goes higher then that.

Sounds like hes being paid... my 4870x2 has a 1 amp fan and at 66% it could be used as a leaf blower. GTX 480 has a 1.8 amp fan... at 66% you could probably use it to generate hurricane effects for hollywood.

There's a video, where they gradually up the speed of the fan and even at 75%, it doesn't sound that bad.

It's not only about amp ratings, but also about shape of the blades.

He also said that the sound is almost as bad as a GTX 295 at stock levels so if you raise the fan setting to 70% it's not really going to be what I'd consider a quiet card. I even think my 5850 is too loud which is why I'm buying a WC block for it. Can't stand PCs making too much noise.

I only hear my 295+ when I sit at the login screen of WoW and the dragon
roars ...over and over and over....it heats it up pretty well..other than that
it's very quiet ...(Under load it's not though).

I'm looking forward to having a 480 in my rig....

For me, I already have my GTX 280 fans running at 100% nearly all the time. But I already have 5 case fans and my CPU fan creating a wind tunnel in my computer, and the additional noise isn't really an issue. I usually turn my volume up anyways or wear noise-cancelling headphones. Besides, its a constant noise and helps drown out the city cacaphony outside my apartment. Sort of like how you can go to sleep with the fan or AC on. Its almost soothing lol.

Default Re: Man, it is sooo hot.

Looks like they could have came up with a better cooling solution.100c is just to hot IMO for a card.That is 212F hot enough to boil water.I like Gigabyte new Ultra Durable vaga solution ,but since the GTX 480 run hotter to begain with I don't know how much it would help.I do know that it keeps a HD5870 cool .I ran furmark with 4xFSAA and it never got above 46c on one card and the other card it went to 50c.But it has 4 heatpipes and two inclined cooling fans and only reached 23% on the fans ,but even turning them up to a 100% they are still quiter then my case fans,and my case fans are three 220mm and one 140mm.I imangine to get them to clock as high as they are ,they are going to be hard to cool good,unless you go with water.That is the main reason I don't want the GTX 480 because of heat and noise ,I got a big enough power supply to handle the power draw.It will be ATI for me this time around ,I hope nvidia next generation or they redo this model and I think a die shrink would be the only thing to get it to run cooler.Unless it has major power leakage and they can respin the chip and fix that.The card itself is fast but it has to many draw backs for me.Even running my TRI SLI GTX 280OCX only ran at 75c with the fan at 65%,but it was not quite by no means.
