So which GTX 960 is the quietest?

From the comments, I'm seeing that the MSI is a good contender.

===================

Upon further review, it looks to be true.

I picked up the MSI GTX 960 Gaming 4G over the weekend and like it a lot. No fans spin when no load. Has a backplate. I am very happy with the overall build quality. Installed in a Fractal R5. Has Afterburner and MSI Gaming App. Both I found useful.

I was also able to remove a video cable as unlike my EVGA 560Ti needing both, I only needed to add the 2 pin connector on the single cable..
