I can verify that the OTES (dustbuster) type fan on the ABIT 5800 is very quiet.
LOL- nVidia probably regrets that one to this day, although, to be fair, the ABIT solution looks like it costs a lot comparatively.

This is a dead issue, I threw the thing away and am acquiring a 5800 Ultra.

BTW I did do straight from the PSU on an Antec 350 and an Antec 430, I tried no molex as well when all else had failed.

I was sick of dealing with the 5800 after having tried it in two boxes multiple times and even replacing the psu in one box. When my wife started an argument with me about ordering another 5800 before this one was a "done deal", I threw it away and said it's a done deal.

LOL way cool Rage. The laugh alone was worth $200..

Actually, the laugh was worth your keychain. Paypal me $10 to cover the shipping and it's yours. I'll include the manual and CDs as memorobilia as well.
