Hi, I know some people have had success with certain makes of 7850 or 7870 in being able to run with the fan turned off at idle, but does anyone know of a 7770 or 7790 which can do the same?

Would be great but I haven't heard of a single graphics card to have that feature built in. In general the manufacturers aren't even capable of giving us fans that run at really low speeds when idle, so there seems to be little work done into the field of fanned coolers that get really, really quiet at idle.

Thanks MKK. I think the only thing I've read is a couple of people on here with Gigabyte 7870 OCs who were able to run without a fan at idle, but it seems to be just that one card (which is really more power than I want). Shame that passive cards seem to have fallen from favour, just the 7750 and 7850, which from reviews seems to consume a lot of power even at idle. I suppose I'll just settle for the fanless 7750 even though I'd like something a bit faster.

Setup a custom fan speed curve in MSI Afterburner. You'll be able to lower the fan/s to something inaudible, or maybe even stop them altogether when the GPU is idling. :)
