XFX HD 7970 Black Edition thoughts please ???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I've been thinking about getting myself a XFX HD 7970 Black Edition with the dual fan cooler.

I'm just wondering what the fan noise is like compared with the stock cooler on all the rest of the reference HD 7970 cards???

Can anyone out there that has XFX HD 7970 Black Edition let me know what its like and what you think of the card in general.

Cheers

It's MUCH quieter than the stock fan when you crank it up. I have 2 XFX Black edition stock coolers, and 1 XFX Black edition Dual Fan cooler, and the Dual fan is super quiet, but unfortunately doesn't OC as high as I'd like so I'm going to be getting rid of it soon :\
