The noise of the fan, in the video, compared to the reference cooler is roughly the same.

Not to mention that it takes the 480 to 80c at 100% fan speed.

1. GTX 480 max load on fan= 45DB. It doesn't matter what it sounds like in the video, in real life, the 480 will be wayyy louder than the Icy vision.

2. The 480 is THE most hot card on the market today. It draws the most power which means the most heat.

He compared a reference cooler at 100% fan speed with an aftermarket cooler at 100% fan speed.

It doesn't matter if it's the hottest card, what matters is the improvement over the stock cooling. So in essence what I am comparing is not the actual temperature, but the % improvement over stock cooling.

Unfortunately I can't find any review sites that used this cooler with an ATI card, so I can't complete my calculations.....
