why wont someone think of the children
That sounds like planes waiting to take off at the airport (relatively speaking).
Bunch of jelly haters
for some reason the date of this announcement, 4/20, seems appropriate for this card.
because when the date is properly displayed at 20/4, it is 20 divide by 4 which = 5 (for number of fans on the card)?
hahaha that's a good one... but i was referring to them smoking something. (in the u.s. its MM/DD/YYYY)
so were did his wife put that vacuum hose.It sure sounds like one.
leave it to Gigabyte to make a crazy ass wild noisy fan setup for a card.
uhm, yeah, that's one less GPU I will be buying.
I hope they don't start having a "Who can have the most fans" contest like they do with razors.
They have those girls at lots of computer places here in Taiwan. I try to pick them up but then the wife and kids tell me not too.
I could probably get over the fan noise if the card performed better than average ... but damn its so UGLY!. It better be well below $500 or they arent selling any.
OH GOD, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?
*cowers in corner*
Hmm and interesting cooling solution. I would like to see some db and C numbers before put any comment.
But if those fans works like the server fans, i would suggest Gigabyte to give a "jet fighter game" with "True Sound" effect along the card.
everyone banging on about the sound, just because they are using 40mm fans typically found in servers doesn't mean they are going to run them at 5k rpm at 150dba they would most likely limit them, seriously thinking they wouldn't is just silly
I can't say that I am not curious...
I'll take a couple....?
im sure there a screws somewhere I can take off and mount some WB?
is a pair of these
included in the bundle?
What's the point of this video?? The fans similar to the videocard weren't even working!! Check from 0:18.
Call me crazy but I like it
Yes, yes they were on, there are guides similar to fan blades on those fans.
well looking closer at the fans... they seem to resemble a design like this one
Delta AFB0412LB-F00 40mm Case Fan
which has decent noise specs at 18.5dba or so. each with 6.5CFM. If Gigabyte uses a similar fan then the noise won't be so bad, and the total airflow won't be bad either, about 32CFM, but could be a little more depending on what fan they're using. I don't think they're the type used in servers... they don't look that deep and don't look like they have the air flow guides either, so they're a simpler design fan.
I can't tell what size the thing is - it looks awful to me.
so.. this thing looks like it takes up 4 slots =/
this cant be a real product.. can it?
Gigabyte reads our forums and reach conclusion that most "diehard" "hardcore" "professional" "gamers" "Fatal1ties" (LOL) use headphones (with additional 200$ headphone amplifiers, OMG!!!) when playing, so noise stopped being an issue for the Chosen Folk!!! Bend and obey the trends!
