Pretty cool post!
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.

I bought watercooling to shut-up my 480
best card at time I got it
and I haven't found a game it cannot Max out
they did folding for months on end and is still going strong

For me it's value and realistic needs over having the top spec cards of the year in my build.
560 ti 448 classy runs BF3 flawlessly on my single monitor. And hey its older but you don't really need a 660 ti or higher to game at 1080p. I got a great deal on it on ebay, $143. Definitely a steal, you find 480s for that price.
Watercooling is good, but no condusive to my case. Had i a bigger case i would've definite done " The mod" and slapped an antec 620 on there or something.
