Coolest/Quietest 780Ti OC edition - Page 3

post #21 of 27
As a current Gigabyte Ghz Ti card, i would say stay away.

Card is quiet, but not stable out of the box. You will need to downclock the card. It is rated for 1150 after boost, but mine goes to 122X but is not stable. Once i downclock it back down to 1150 after boost it becomes stable. And while this is fine, because it does what is rated for, i dont think we should have to tweak anything for it to work out of the box. I believe the Gigabyte Ghz bios is fubar.

Purchase at your own risk.

Is the msi 780 ti really 30db at load?? That doesn't seem possible to me, a gpu of this power maintaining good temps with a noise level that low. I know twin frozr is good, but that much better than dcu ii, or any of the other coolers? And of msi can do this with the 780 ti, why are the 780 and 280x and 299/x twin frozrs significantly louder? Dunno just seems too good to be true. If msi engineers can do this they may as well get into the case fan and cpu cooler markets and dominate.

If anything the Ti should be louder/hotter as it has more cores.

Fellow OCNer PM'd me and said he was returning his Gigabyte WF because of the fan noise.

Same experience here.

The ONLY way to accurately compare coolers is to physically use the same card and only swap the cooler.

Second thing to consider, is all AIB partners tune their fan ramp differently, on ACX cards we are a bit more aggressive on the fan ramp, so it cools well (and still is quieter than reference). Obviously this can be tuned to each individual's liking with Precision or similar programs.

Maybe if you leave them on auto. But if you spin them @ the same RPM, as I did @ 1900 RPM, then it's pretty easy to compare fan noise. @ 1900 RPM, the ACX's fans cannot compete w/ the TF4. Not to mention the TF4's fans idle @ a slower RPM than the ACX which is great for those of us w/ silent PC's. MSI has been tweaking the TF for quite some time, EVGA's ACX is brand new. Hopefully, we'll see improvements in the next ACX!

Also, I'd just like to point out that I'm very particular about sonics. As you can see on Newegg, there are PLENTY of folks that are happy w/ their EVGA.

It's not all rosy w/ the MSI either. Coil whine is louder than my EVGA and you cannot remove the heatsink wo/ voiding the warranty. That said, I cannot hear the coil whine outside of 3Dmark's 1st few tests and the winSAT test. And w/ load temps of 67C in BF4 in room temps of 25C, I have no reason to remove the heatsink.

Yes, it is that quiet. I got the same dB using a similar setup as TPU.

It is much better than the DC2. Here:

MSI fan

IIRC, the 780 vanilla was measured @ 30dB by TPU as well.

Yes, MSI should be making fans for CPU air coolers. Their propeller fan has nailed static pressure and noise.

Get a classy, they have the largest heat sink out of all the cards. I know mine if pretty tame as far as noise/temp go, and that in an itx case.

Yeah, if I had known the classy was so much bigger than what you get on the ACX, I might have gone that route. Still, the fans look to be the same size.

Would EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked Edition be louder than stock and reference GTX 680 with a reference cooler? I hope not because GTX 680 stock reference cooler gets very loud for me and I just ordered EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked. I hope its not as loud...
post #27 of 27
The ACX cooler from the evga superclocked is loud as a vacuum cleaner on load/gaming. I got one a few days ago and was like wth this is loud.. Did not expect that from an aftermarket cooler.

The chip was verrry nice, looked like binned. Hynix mem and great clocker but the noise oh the noise. Exchanged it for the DCII. It was too loud for me, louder then reference and the last card i have used that was just a bit louder then the acx was an 4890 radeon..

If u want a quiet rig i would not go for ACX
