When I read a reviews on gigabyte cards that use this cooler, the noise signature is always reported as very quiet, if not one of the quietest... so I don't see a reason why not this time...

I have a gigaybte 460 SOC and I don't hear it over my very quiet case fans. Also never goes over 60c. Great cooler and nice to see them using them on the 6870

Is that the Arctic Cooling VGA cooler? This is a very nice looking card, Gigabyte really is making some headway with their cars these last few months. I tried to get my nephew to get one of their 5770s but he went with Sapphire...
