Yes, it's a THG review and only german. But the noise comparison of the tested cards seems to have some value.

I like those videos, same as they've done in their other GPU roundups. The ambient noise may be high, but it does give you an idea of what they sound like, which I like to know before buying. Any coil whine/chugging? And do the fans have a high-pitched whiney noise, or a smoother and more broadband sound? :)
