My System Specs

Default Asus DCu ll ,outstanding performance / noise

Just wanted to say,i got my new 770 and the GPU fans are silent at idle and you can barely hear them at 50%,compared to my GTX 570 windforce, it's like switching from a 3 dollar fan to a noctua :) Asus got a new fanboy :P

Yes even running them at a 100% they are real quiet.I went from the GTX-470's to the ASUS 670's and it was night and day difference.

Just for fun...I set my Twin-Frozr IV to 100% fan, just to see, and like my 660 DCII's, it was ultra quiet. The heatsinks on the current crop of cards (600/700s) are just superb. They have really made some advancements in fan/heatsink design.

The DirectCu (single fan) on my 5830 used to be waaay louder than this!
