I got two running in SLI and I'm a very happy camper. Was a sweet and worthwhile upgrade from my SLI gtx 275s

I am extremely happy with my GTX 480 SLI set up. I had to change the fan profile so that it would ramp up faster than the stock auto set up. My idle is at 60-65C and at full load they stay at 80-85C which is not too bad. The noise was also very overrated. I play with noise canceling headphones so I barely hear them. However, I took them off to see what the noise was like and until they get to full load the fan in my room is louder than they are. smile.gif

Yup...all the "CONS" of the GTX480 are over-rated and spread by people that don't know any better (regurgitate old, old reviews of the 480 ES cards).

I just bought the ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME Plus II, couldn't stand the noise while I let my card fold. Idle around 55C when playing BF3 went up to 88C fan speed was about 88%. 88% is okay when I play BF3 since I have my headsets on, but while folding fan speed is at 88% and I can hear it from the room next to mine. Hopefully the ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME Plus II will allow me to fold with out the noise:thumb:

It's going to be night and day difference for both noise and heat. Got a 580 with that cooler and it never goes up to more than 60c playing BF3 for hours. Fan speed=48% on MSI AB

How anyone can stand SLI GTX 480 is beyond me. 80% fan speed is EXTREMELY loud. I generally play without headphones so it's really bothering me to the point that I can't really enjoy the games anymore because of the jet plane starting up next to me. How people can tolerate this noise is really beyond me. Can't wait to water cool these.

Mine on air though were never really that loud. But I always have my speakers fairly loud so who knows.
