and idc bout fan noise as the big one i have blowing in my face is louder than my entire system
(hot in my room)
I don't think the ugly fan and heat sinks are anything special. It's a 2 pin connector. CCC doesn't even give a good reading on the RPM speed. Also the card is very bare bones. Doesn't even have heat sinks on GDDR5 RAM and other parts.
So I think there is alot of room for improvement on the fan and heat sinks.
One thing is certain. The fans work good enough to keep the GPU cool and I think the new 40nm GPU on this card has runs cool.
These fans are much more quieter than the HD4850.
