Hi there, I bought a Gigabyte X800 XL AGP hoping that it would be the new Silentpipe model with passive cooling (trying to build a very silent pc) - but I got a -B model, which had a very noisy active cooling running all the time at 100%. I'm trying to return the card but the shop is giving me a hard time since they are saying that Gigabyte doesn't even sell this card with Silentpipe (http://www.giga-byte.com/VGA/Products/Products_GV-R80L256V.htm > see manual). On the other hand, Gigabyte doesn't even have the actively cooled -B model on their website, nor do they have a new bios for it. Anyway, I'm looking now at different options to make the card more silent. Would you recommend to flash it with a different bios (which maybe is temperature controlled) or would you just use Atitool for slowing the fan. Or would it be just better to buy an Arctic Cooler to make it more silent? Then another short question, which I always wanted to know - I never succeeded softmodding my old 9800SE AIW (ATI VPU recovery always kicked in after Windows loaded), would it have made any difference if I had a better cooling on the card?
