Looks like there really can be some difference in these GTX 480s.

Regrettably I didn't get screenshots of my first, but when I installed it:

idle temp: 73C
kombuster load temp: 104C
VID: 1036

and this was clocked at 726/1452 1900 (same as superclocked edition).

Deciding it was entirely too hot and entirely too loud I returned it, figured I'd give the 480 one more shot.





I know it was only a 2:30 run, but the card will sit there jumping between 79 and 80C for a good 20 minutes before it finally decides to hit 81-82... sometimes. If I use a more lenient fan curve (100% at 90C instead of 85C) the card will sit around 85C on kombuster.

Now I'm not sure what these cards average, but this seems much more reasonable to me.

Should try and get a 120mm fan near that 480 it will help lower temps a lot without raising the fan speed.

Have my 480 @ 825/1650/1950 1.05V and gets to about 73C max in folding, but there are people who pushed it even further but good case airflow is a must with this card.

Problem is it's getting fed hot air off the back of my 285, which is currently being a physx card. Looking to sell it and replace with a gtx 250 (cooler, and doesn't block the fan on the 480) - just stalling because I don't feel like fooling with ebay.
