it had taken alot of time and effort to make it quiet and stick OC and Perform well
That's interesting to have a system with those specs. which is also quiet.
I would think the most significant part of quieting it down was installing the AXP's on the 480's. Nice to have the best of both worlds.

I think its actually closer to 950mhz core and 2150mhz memory that it can do stable but I have to do more testing to be sure.
Those are very impressive clocks for an air-cooled 480, that's way higher than I could clock mine at. Let us know how it does with further stress and artifact testing. Mine seems to reach its practical limit at 882/2000, but 800/2000 is the sweet spot for 24/7 use.

I sure don't miss the old days when 80mm fans were the norm. Loudest fan I had was a 92mm Vantech Tornado, it was well in excess of 50db at full speed. Needless to say, I didn't use it for very long!

Edit:
I had forgotten how crazy that 92mm Tornado was. It was rated by Vantec at 119cfm@4800rpm at a noise level of 56.4db.
I dug up a review on the 80 and 92mm versions:

I am currently having the same problem with my GTX 570 with the VF3000F and the EVGA backplate. The screws that came with the Zalman VF3000F has a wider head then the holes provided by the Backplate. Does anyone what are the size if the screws that the vf3000f came with? I've looked everywhere and cannot seem to find screws of that size with a smaller head.
