Arctic Cooling has a new heatsink but I haven't seen it at any sites yet.

Good luck with that. I'll be buying (2) of the Arctic Cooling heatsinks when they hit the shelves

are yougoing to be getting them for your 480's slaymate?

What case do you have? that might have to do with your temps, what kind of airflow do you have? In actuality, your temps arent that high for a graphics card, let alone a nivida 4xx series card.
