    Hi!

    I'm going to buy a GTX 780, but, what is the quietest? (lower fan noise and temperatures)

    I'm thinking of the Gigabyte GTX 780 Ghz, but i don´t know if Windforce is silent, 3 fan...

    Msi... ok, very quiet, but I do not like because the PCB is brown xD

    EVGA maybe? Or gigabyte it´s quiet?

    -Sorry for my english, google translator-

    The quietest 780 is one that isn't turned on.

    In all seriousness, at stock without any changes, the Asus DCUII is probably the most silent.

    TPU reviews say the Asus and MSI are the quietest @ 30dB

    Gigabyte comes in @ 38dB (I own one)

    Depends on budget. If money is not an issue, buy the one with the best factory clock, or the one that is quieter. Depends on your most important requirement.

    That's a significant drop in idle temp for the Gigabyte. Probably from the heatsink and fan redesign?
