"Quoting from the AMD reviewer's guide, "a lot of work has gone into reducing noise levels for the Radeon™ RX 480." Sorry, but no, gaming noise levels are bad. The reference card is noisier than every single card released in recent times, and it runs at well above 80°C too. We confirmed the temperature and noise levels with other reviewers, so it's not only our sample."
The fan ramp is pretty steep in every card. If I can run my 6870 @1900rpm versus 3100 rpm at stock settings, surely we can all do the same.

If you don't care about warranty try to repaste the RX 480.

I didn't bother because I actually needed the warranty.

if you mentioning the twin frozr cooler yeah those are great cooling...full load gaming at 30% fan while keeping it at 60-65 max temps.

I briefly had an XFX RX 480 at launch and I can confirm that the thing is very quiet. You really have to actually experience it. It's about as loud as one of my case fans (which are also silent) at full load.

No it's not, 0dB = disabled fans. My 980 Ti has it. Complete silence when I'm working. Other fans are 5v/400RPM Noctua's. My PSU is semi-fanless. All SSD's. That's what I consider quiet.

I have already tried one, and it's by no means quiet compared to good custom solutions. If you think it's quiet, your PC must be noisy..

For me anything above about 1250rpm for a 10cm fan is noticeable. These new GPU coolers aren't doing any better than the beefier 2 year old coolers on more power hungry cards and do stay below 1500rpm.

I'm always like WTH is this when they show 2000rpm+ for a custom 480 under load... disappointing aeroplane noise.
I know there are some issues on many cards with messed up fan curves. But still anything over 40dB is a nono for me.

My PC is pretty quiet, especially since all I use are fluid dynamic bearing fans. I also have an SSD like you. That being said, I can barely hear the fans really at full load.

I have a 0db card. Its an obvious gimmick but on the other hand its not really doing anything bad. I undervolted my card to 1.06V so even on full tilt I cant tell the difference between idle especially with the amount of background noise in my home.

I'm sorry man I have an msi golden edition 980ti as well as the 480. The Radeon card is significantly quieter at load speeds. Not trying to start a fight just saying that I was pleasantly surprised, especially considering my last Radeon card was a nano that was loud as hell, unbearably so in fact.

No I didn't until forceman pointed it out. I thought these were going to the similar to your $40/year power consumption metrics.
