Hey guys, I just recently got a realllllly good deal on an GTX 480 so I had to buy it. Ive been prepping my NZXT M59 and I have 4/5 Fans with the 5th one coming.

Right now im running a PNY GTS 250. At Load... Im running at 50C. Does that sound pretty cool? Wha temps will I see with the 480?

sorry to answer you question they will get hot over 80 degrees and they will eat power, you will probably see 90 degrees after a harcore gaming session. They are the hottest, power hungry monsters ever created.

FX 5800 would beg to differ

Not every chip is the same, so your temperatures might be different. But you can always expect in the upper 70's. I would recommend getting this cooler: http://www.gelidsolutions.com/products/index.php?lid=1&...

The stock cooler will be perfectly fine, remember every GPU chip is rated differently in terms of thermal specifications. The GTX 480 is rated at around 105C, but in reality your 480 should only run in the mid 80's which is well below the max rated temp.

Alright cool, is there like a $15-20 VGA cooler to drop it down 10C?

Nope. But the thing is, THERE is no POINT of doing so!
