Default The 470's

For the DX11, but not for month or so yet, really want some nice cards for Two Worlds II tbh, and something far less loud than my 280's. They scream in this hot weather

Dan, can we avoid posting all these massive charts, they really mess up the thread and easier to just Link the information instead of posting the images.

Not to mention the fact that it is stealing the bandwidth of the sites they are hosted at without giving them any page views or revenue from advertisements.

I don't see any bitching. And you can provide benchmarks without posting images and certainly without hotlinking them. Just post a link to the appropriate page, or spend 30 seconds and paraphrase the results yourself. Those are all much better and more effective approaches than the one you've been taking, which only clutters up the forum and robs other hardware sites of their revenue.

Back on topic, I hope the Twin Frozer on the 480 will be quieter than the one on my GTX 260. It is unbearable when it is ramped up, much worse than any other card I have....

Yes I know but when it is folding and needs to be cooled it is much noisier than my 470.

I keep mine at 40% fan speed if I remember correctly, and it's basically silent while still cooling better than my reference 65nm GTX260 while running at 70% fan speed. It is noisier at higher fan speeds, but there's also no need to go that high.
