If you don't think you have found out everything you can possibly know about the new 8800GTS, or want to see how different vendors handled this new card, check out the Tech Report's review of the EVGA 8800GTS.  The SLI testing they did offers even more confusion into nVIDIA's naming scheme, as now we have a GTS model that can outperform GTX cards, and GT that can out perform the older GTS.  Just try figuring out which card you need, can afford, and most of call ... can actually find for sale.

The already confusing suffixes on nVIDIA's video cards got even more confusing with the release of a GT that out performed the GTS model.  Usually they run GT --> GTS -->GTX --> Ultra, but with the switch to G92 the GT outperformed the GTS, except when the extra memory of the GTS can be utilized.  The new G92 8800GTS has trimmed the memory down from 640MBs to the more usual 512MBs as well as some other nice speed improvements that placed it in it's proper spot in [H]ard|OCP'

For the reasons laid out in the beginning of the AnandTech article, the idea of a silently cooled 8800GT seems preposterous, die shrink or not.  The mind pictures a one slot card with a 3 slot passive cooler and heatpipes that extend beyond your case.  As it turns out, this card really isn't that large, and while the temperatures do go well over 100C, the card exhibited no errors after a Crysis torture test.
