I ended up sending mine back to the retail for refund.
Im sorry, but these new propellor blade fan desings are loud. I love the heatsink, but the fans are way too loud. I wish msi stuck with the typhoon style fan blades like the ones on the twin frozr II. Im dissapointed, because i was really looking foward to owning a couple of these cards
I dont know, maybe i just got a bad card. The fan was abnormally loud. Had a weird kind of harmonic noise, almost sounded like an electric motor that is being stressed to hard. Not like the tf2, where all you can hear is air moving.
The card I got also ran kind of hot for a 560. Like I said, I may have gotten a bad card but i cant afford to try and get another one. I might either end up getting a coupld twin frozr II models, or one of the asus direct CU models. I love msi cards, but I dont think the tf2 model has vrm heatsinks like the hawk does.
MSI ALEX, is there any feedback you can give me on this matter? I know with twin frozr II 570 it says on the box 8.4db quieter, but the new 560 hawk didnt have anything like that on the box. Is it supposed to be quieter?
