Quote:the 480 had a TDP of about 250w or higher. it NEEDED a bigger heatsink. Thats why they made it with heatpipes so huge they came out of the graphics card.
560 ti 448 classified has a TDP of about 210w. Definitely more manageable for the cooler to handle.
As for anybody wanting to get an EVGA Hadron as a case, REALLY recommend getting a vga card with a blower or water cooling. dual fan coolers that exhaust into the case will not be a good option.
