So far most of my system is silent or near silent except for the video card. Im looking to see if I can replace my GTX 460 for something quieter but still keep the performance for gaming. I should have done more research before getting an external exhaust video card. I thought i would have high case temp but after my computer was built it is running cooler than I thought it would be. Currently I have a Silverstone gd04b case with all 3 stock case fan running at 450rpm and big shiruken cpu cooler running at 600rpm. My idle temp is 20C for cpu and 25C for mb. During load it just reaches 25C for cpu and 28C for mb. At idle/low load its quiet but I cant hear the video card. Heavy load during game play it can get pretty load. The computer is about 7 feet away from me. Any suggestions?
