    good review. hopefully they modify the fan to be more quieter. Nice card to have for low power consumption and to play older games occassionaly.

    This card does not support Hybrid CF right?

    Which cards does in the 5xxx series?

    Simple fix for the card, since it is a low profile card, it shouldn't really need a fan at all

    certainly not true, low profile means the heat has less space, so they can run hotter

    Any chance of manually adjusting the fan speed by mod or otherwise?

    always! just disconnect the wires and hook them up to a power source of your choosing.

    you can see here its just a two pin socket, i've wedged them into standard 3 pin fan headers and its worked fine before - just make sure they go around the right way!

    This card screams out for a passive version to be made available. Has anyone tried putting an Accelero S1 or Zalman VF770 on one yet?

    well low profile units are usually less powerdrawing, hence why the half height PCB. I know PCB does part of the thermal dissipation but not here. I say a passive heatsink would do well for this board easily. Also for anything passive to work you need some sort of airflow.
