It vents outside the case. From what I have read it's reasonably quiet at high speeds as well. Performance wise there won't be much improvement with a custom card but you will be able to cool the card without as much fan speed, though you have the downside of the coolers venting into the case.

Only place where you can pre-order for now is shopBLT with incoming stock on 23/06
Link: http://www.shopblt.com/cgi-bin/shop/shop.cgi?action=thispage&thispage=011004001505_B3U8496P.shtml&order_id=!ORDERID!

BHPhotovideo is getting stock around the same time, amazon is getting stock of various cards early next week (when I chatted to them earlier, he discussed w/ his supervisor)

Nowinstock alerts will help 100%, but only if you drop everything, run like mad to your PC (some parkour will help), and click on links to buy like you had inhaled well beyond the safe limit of crack

LOL! Thanks for the vivid bit of colorful imagery writing there. hahaha. thumb.gif

I think I might say F-it and get the founders now. I don't wanna wait another 2 weeks to maybe enjoy the rest of my new toys and the venting outside the case sounds like a big perk.

Thanks for the info guys.

The FE cooler is definitely quieter than the previous reference cooler. It's actually pretty quiet in general if you just drop it in and go but you'll quickly hit 81-82*C and start throttling. I created a custom fan profile in Precision to give me just enough fan RPM to sit around 75*C and at that point the card was clearly audible. Not loud - just very noticeable.

I am currently running a Gaming X and it's literally inaudible at full-load with a max temp of ~70*C. The side effect, as you mentioned, is how these cards dump their exhaust into the case. I personally am having no trouble accommodating it but I'm sure there are certain situations where it could be a concern. I don't know that I would want to sandwich two of these in SLI. For that, the reference cooler would be better suited.

I guess it comes down to what is an acceptable level of volume for each person.

I am not in a quiet environment, my pc with every fan (12 of them) at 100% is still the quietest thing in the room. The highway that is 60 feet from the window next to my desk is tough competition when it comes to decibels so I am pretty easy to please in terms of noise.

With AMD's 480 coming soon I don't think I could buy a used 970 for more than $150 at most. I think you'll get more for them, but that'd be my max, which sounds low.

I was just kidding anyways, I usually give my old cards away to someone who will appreciate them.

Going price is about $200 on ebay, $250 if you're lucky. Sell fast as value will go down soon with the $200 RX 480 release end of this very month
