So I noticed on load, the fan noise is the loudest of any other card. Was this set to 100% or something? What were your impressions with the noise? I mean, is it really obnoxious?
When I got my 8800gt, the fan didn't kick in and make noise until it got to 100C or so. Is it possible they lowered the "kick in" temperature which is why load results in higher sound than the other cards?
