first thing I noticed was the fan is silent. afterburner has it running at 48% so I locked it in at that setting, I can not hear it at all. On the GTS250, I locked the fans in at 40%, anything more and I could hear it over the case fans. It was never an issue since the card never broke 63c.
HWmonitor has the GTX460 running idle at 36c. During all the benchmarks it never broke 57c.
