Supposed to be inaudible when idle and audible under load but within reasonable range.

Way better than reference coolers ... for GTX 570 Rev2 reference cooler supposed to be ok too.
(the one on EVGA GTX570 HD for instance)

Just thinking if I should get one of those 3 slot ones or just a regular 2 slot with one of those 2 or 3 fan coolers. Sort of would like a blower due to mATX. However the case I want to get, or if I keep my current one, will have a fan blowing right onto the card, so one of those non-reference coolers may be better.

Also congrats on 200 pages of posts everyone. biggrin.gif

I also like nice even round numbers, anything with a 50 ... simply won't do LOL. but yea, provisioning for the far future is a big thought of mine.

thanks for suggestions though!

ive heard the 1k rpm slim scythe pushes like no air but they have a 2k rpm one. I just need to find a slim 120 mm fan thats not 25 mm think. cuz anything 25mm thick blocks the RAM port closest to the cpu cooler frown.gif that means no RAM with large heatsinks.

If you dont have the space for noctuas star destroyer, just go for another. There are a lot of 120mm fan CPU coolers out there, or just get a mini watercooling kit, like Corsair Hydro series, or Antec H2O.

I'm sure my next gpu will be a TFII/III or DCUII. I know you have the 341 now, but I also know you were looking for a different case a while back. Any new ideas on that?

Didn't you also say you wanted a sound card (best purchase I have made recently) and tv tuner? If that's the case a 2 slot would probably be best.

I was considering the TJ08-E or an Arc MINI from Fractal Design.

But the TJ08-E is higher on my list. I already have a sound card, and now I want a TV tuner, but I don't want to use the second PCI-E x8 slot for the tuner and "Bottleneck" my card to x8. I know it wont make a difference but I have a pet peeve about that.

As mentioned above I am considering just going back ATX for ease of use, but I'll be lesser of a man.

I could always just use the onboard X-Fi, but I don't want to because I already have a sound card and don't want to sacrifice anything especially when BF3 comes out.

I could just get a DVR but I can't alt tab and watch that between missions, with a TV tuner I could.

Kjavs, the difference between x16 and x8 is REALLY SMALL.
I tested that myself with my 560Ti, difference in 3DM11 Performance preset was a mere 50-70points or something like that.

MSI Twin Frozr III GTX 570 and drop the DCII.

For TJ08-E GFX card may be ~33cm long ... i have got that case right here.

Also probably there is external TV Tuners for USB ?

@UltraSwank

How about Yate Loon D12SL-12C Slim 120x120x20 41 CFM ?!
