If you want quiet, do not consider CLC coolers. I say again, do not conside CLC coolers. Their pumps make noise. Expensive custom looks have pumps that can move many times as much coolant and mount on vibration dampeners. Even these expensive pumps often make a little noise.
I have use aftermarket air coolers on several GPUs to get near silent use. Alpenfohn Peter, Porlimatech MK-26, Arctic, and a few others make them. I prefer the bigger coolers with 120mm fans because they allow the easier use of quieter fans.
Even some of the big coolers that are stock on some GPUs work very well. My Asus GTX 580 Direct CUII is quiet. My only complaint is the built in PWM software limits the idle to about 1100rpm. I solved this with an inline resister on fan power lead. By lowering the voltage a little the idle speeds came down about 300rpm. The cooling capacity is big enough the fans never need to run full speed anyway .. assuming the cooler intake air temp is less than 5c above room ambient.
ciarlatano[/@<br /> As far as I know an 'Imma Stick' is used to guage water levels in ditches and ponds. Stick it into bank at water's level and watch to see if the water gets lower/away from stick or starts to rise around stick. Pretty sure they were first used by by same gentleman who first used round tu-its.<br /> <br /> I guess if they are stuck by a GPU the somehow show airflow or temperature. <img src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/confused.gif
