Gigabyte Windforce 3x - Anyone have experience?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new graphics card and Gigabyte has an 6870 with quite an impressive cooler
http://www.overclock3d.net/news/gpu_...6870_oc_card/1

But there is almost zero information out there on the web regarding this card or this cooling system. Anyone here have any experience with a gigabyte card with Windforce cooling? I'm mostly concerned about the noise of this thing.

The "Windforce" cooler has been on other cards besides the 6870 and has always been reviewed as one of (if not) the most quiet. The only thing I don't like it that it exhausts into the case. The reference 6870 are like lawnmowers over 50% fan speed.
