Galaxy GTS 250. Great cooling, noisy as hell.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
This thing sounds like a white noise generator on idle.

I appreciate is can run 50C on full load for hours, but damn is it loud.

Are any of the aftermarket cooler quiet? I can get an arctic twin turbo,
but the name is noisey sounding.

Accelero S1 doesn't look beefy enough.

I can get and Accelero Xtreme 9800 and mod it

Or I can take the stock fan off and bolt a scythe fan onto it or something.

I would just use MSI afterburner or any program that will let you setup a fan profile and adjust it until your happy with the noise level. Check the temperature of the GPU at load with new fan profile, just make sure it doesn't reach 90C+.

Sadly at the lowest setting, it is still very loud.

Not much to be done I guess except to try and muffle the noise.

Artic Cooling stuff are usually good performers and very silent. The only con is it would make your card use 3 slots.

And cost more than an antec kuhler 620 while performing worse.

Oh wait! I have an idea, Strap an antec kuhler to the card. :]

Why? Temps are friggin awesome (i've done something similar with my Corsair H70 and my GTX 470, and at full load it barely breaks 61c) and with some silent fans you can get it to be pretty silent.
