30min Furmark @ ~900rpm:

Can you run Heaven 20 min loop? Furmark isn't accurate.

Adding pictures of the Sapphire RX480 reference blower fan, and the sapphire hd7870 ghz edition fan (dual fans)..

The hd7870ghz edition fans are the same ones on the Sapphire rx280/280x and several other models of sapphire cards..

Any ideas on what screws need to be removed for just the plastic shroud?

hd7870 replacement fans came in, mounted them in the shroud and stuck it on the 480 while it's out and apart.. still waiting on heat sinks, thermal paste, thermal tape, thermal epoxy..
