    Hello all,
    My Ati HD 5770 graphics card is just too loud for me to enjoy games. The stock cooling fan runs at very very high speed under load and the whirr bores into my skull making immersion in games impossible. Mechanically theres nothing wrong with it so Im looking for a new cooling solution to cut the noise right down. Something with more heatsink and slower fans. Can anyone recommend a suitable model of cooler? and if not, a new graphics card around the same power or higher as the 5770 with a quiet cooler.

    Thanks!;)

    Yea ! that has a small little fan on it that can be quite noisy, You can get another card OR remove the fan Or unplug it, I would buy a 80 mm fan with low dbi, and install it either over the top of it or on the bottom of it..
