Subjectively, if you find it to be bearable or can't notice the difference between it and your old card, that's fine, but doesn't make reviewers wrong.
All I said was in the reviews I have read. They all had the Mic sitting right next to the cards. In real life the Mic would be outside the case. I mean how many people run there systems outside of a case. Of course it would be loud if the Mic is placed right next to the card. It would be on any system pretty much, that was all I was saying.
