Maybe I'm just expecting too much, but silent or even 'not loud', this card is not.

When I compare this to this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYWjs...eature=related) it's night and day
Pretty much all stock blower coolers are loud, thats why I got the twin frozr 2 version, I'm sick of loud blower coolers too. Only thing you might check is if the cooler is clean inside, dust blockage could be causing it to heat up quick and ramp the fan up faster.
