BOOOO testing methodolgy, I've never been a fan of testing on open bench, since it's a near useless real world example of what to expect since some fan designs perform terribly in case and marvously in the wide open.
Stuff it in a shuttle where the main cpu is water cooled and that's it. it's going to be in a living room stuffed in the back of an entertainment center or something, not on a open test bench or in a standard case. I mean how many people have a 120mm fan mounted on the side of their case? if you need 3 120mm fans to cool it what's the point? why not just buy a card with a 120mm fan built into it.
you let this thing off easy.
