I have to disagree with you guys on the noise issue. I have had 3 of them. The thing is my pc's are near silent, when ou put in the FX it's extremely loud, much more than 46db, it's also annoying because it's 50mm high pitch whine noise, not just turbulence. However I though I was getting the slightly quieter Gainward cooling this time. Even if I had I was going to mod it. I plan on putting the Zalman on it when it comes out. What I mean is I knew it was loud when I purchased it, but I never intended to keep it stock cooling even if it was the Gainward cooling you've seen in reviews. Either Zalman, watercool, or a 120mm fan bracket on it, is what I always planned to do. I am interested to hear what gameve says.
