My System Specs

Default Gigabyte SOC 7970

The first review is here. Not very in depth. Answers some questions regarding all those fans. The good news is it appears to be very quiet.

Here's a quote "When gaming using the stock clocks, stock fan profile, and an open air test bench we could only barely hear the 7970 spin up under load. Inside a case you just won’t hear it, especially not over other fans inside a typical PC case. If you do find the fans slightly too loud, however, given the enormity of this heatsink you can happily turn the fan RPM down to a level that better suits you, and the card will still run well below dangerous temperatures. We were surprised, but these fans aren't actually that loud."
