Can you point me to one that says it's not? I haven't read any reviews that talked about the card being "loud"--only that it runs hot due to a really low spinning fan.

Take it from those who actually own it--the card is very quiet with the stock fan speed only running at 23%. It's just as quiet as any Nvidia card that I've ever owned. Personally, I think ATI made it TOO quiet as the fan needs to be spinning faster to keep temps down.
