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 10°C. 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.
