    there is definitely oodles of fan speed left.. the ati drivers run it very slowly.. i cant hear mine speed up much at all under load..

    it does sound like a leaf blower when the machine first boots thow.. the stock cooler has a powerful fan on it.. if the card runs hot its cos ati intend it to.. its very quite as they have it set..

    Cut one of those 3pin to 4pin fan converters in half, then cut the gpu fan's wires, and splice it to the 4pin?
