Hi,

I have a gigabyte EP45 DS4, with four pin fan controller for
the cpu. To run a PWM fan. However I use a 3-pin scythe
cpu fan which can be PWM controlled by changing a setting in
the F9 bios.

How are your gpu temps with the modded vf900?

That's the only thing I dislike at the VF, at full it's way too loud.

My XFX 7600GT XXX is silent at 25%, quiet at 40%, too loud at 100%.
But the 100% is only done with 3D gaming.
Putting a VF900 on it, will make it absolute quiet at all settings (I hope).

Try to find an old doctor's stetoscope.
Remove the metal part..
And try to find the loudest part in your case.
For me it's the 3 HD's I have.
All the rest is nearly silent.
