Default Re: GTX570 pretty loud?

Follow-up: installed an Accelero Xtreme Plus now. World of difference, so much so that I'm baffled. GPU idle temp is now 31C (!!) with load never going over 55C. All this while keeping my card absolute quiet. Can't really hear it inside my case (Fractal Design R3). I do have pretty good airflow now too (bottom front 120mm intake, bottom 140mm intake, rear 120mm outtake - all spinning at around 800rpm). Still, this is about the best upgrade I've bought. Ever.

How many slots does it take up?

Glad you have finally found a solution Lapino the card is a good one and can handle most everything you throw at it.

Dual slot, not bigger/higher than the stock one. A bit longer though.
