Quietest GTX 780 Available?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can't remember if I already asked this, but are there any GTX 780 graphics cards that can turn down their fans to around 500RPM?

I'm upgrading from an AMD 7970 with a Accelero Xtreme 7970 and I'm addicted to 500RPM fans, I have to check the lights on my computer to see if it's on or not lol.

I had my eyes on the iChill GeForce GTX 780 HerculeZ X3 Ultra but I can't seem to find any store that sells them. Looking to upgrade because the Accelero Xtreme is too long and is bending upward to accommodate an additional 2 SSDs. Case is (semi) perfect so I don't plan on changing it.

You will want anything but the blower style cooler. ACX is pretty quiet until you pump the fan speed, so overclocking is out of the question if you want to keep RPMs low. The MSI gaming and the Gigabyte three fan cards are pretty quiet as well. Again, this is all going to depend on you keeping the rpms low and dealing with some slightly higher load temps using stock clocks.
