Hey guys,

I'm going for a miniITX build, and my current HD6950s with Arctic Accelero Xtreme Plus 2 won't fit, my next card will be the 770 and I wonder which aftermarket version has the quietest cooler.
I know the card will get pretty loud on (full) load but I'm mainly concerned about idle noise.

I've heard that a lot of Asus DC2 cards have coil whine, the MSI gets a lot of good reviews, the EVGA card looks amazing and the Zotac version is pretty quiet on some youtube videos.

I wonder if you guys have any experience with this card and its coolers.

Thanks in advance,
Jasp3r

I would go with MSI, the review on techpowerup place it as one of the quietest, MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB

Quote:
MSI did a fantastic job with the noise levels of their GTX 770 Gaming. In idle, the card is almost inaudible on an open bench in a quiet room with no other fans. It will certainly be inaudible in a modern case with other fans present.

During gaming, the fan ramps up just a little bit to handle the increased thermal load, but it doesn't get noisy at all. Especially the gaming-noise levels are impressive--much better than any other custom design GTX 770 we've reviewed so far.

I'm looking at shorter, quiet cards myself and came across this: MSI GTX 760 itx

I know it's not a 770 but it's only six inches and the cooler looks really high quality.

Haven't seen any reviews, yet. I will say the Asus version is substantially inferior to the 2-fanned variety. So, I expect the MSI will also fail to provide quiet cooling. It's hard to quietly cool 170W with one fan.
