Default Re: How loud is a 6800GS PCI-E ????

I've got the 6800GS and it is kinda loud. I don't have any of the other cards so I cannot compare it but my video card and my Northbridge fan are the loudest components in my rig. I just purchased an NV Silencer 5 rev3 to replace the fan but I have not installed it yet but from what I hear, the NV5 fan will take care of the fan noise problem and it will drop the temps about 10C. Plus, the fan exhausts out of the case so it will also drop your system temps. If you want I will post back to let you know how much of a difference the new fan did.
