Solid review. Definitely considering replacing my 4890. I think I'm in <3 with the 460 now. :wub:

Not a problem. :)

I'm still surprised by the temperature results, honestly. You'd think with HDT you'd get some stellar cooling.

Oh yeah, forgot to ask. How was the noise level of this card? Much the same as other non-reference 460 coolers?

Were the power consumption numbers taken at the wall (whole system)? or did you use some way of measuring just the power consumption of the card?

Nice review :thumbsup:

I have a question about the card. I went over to newegg to check it out. The "TOP" version they have does not match the card you're calling a "TOP". They do have the card you have pictured but the values are less. Which one is the right card ?
