    actually once the side cover is on they're not to bad

    I'm just a bit miffed they didn't come with the HI/lo speed switches that the originals have so they are stuck at 700rpm 100cfm but atleast they are quiet and powerful

    I really like mine :)
    It cools pretty well, it's very quiet, it's low-profile & doesn't overhang the mobo much, it doesn't block RAM and it looks awesome :)

    You didn't just switch a 5970 for a 480.


    You didn't.

    Yep, the 480 will hold itself nicely until i get a 495 or a 2 480, the 5970 drove me crazy with noise and fucking drivers.

    Also, i might get dual 460 and a new sound card for the money i make from it

    Fuck im in love dont wanna close the panel

    That's some deep pockets you got there.

    Those are all great cards, two 480's would be epic.:rockout:

    No the HSF has got an CM R4 in it as the cpu usually sit around 3.2GHz and is folding it gets a bit to warm to run passive

    It'd be the same here except our Govt has no balls and signed up to the ETS (emissions trading scheme):nutkick: now the power companies think that's a good enough reason to up the prices by 20~30% :wtf: If only we could harness all the methane coming off of the cow shit from dairy farms we'd be sweet
