This card doesn't have any fan control.
Result: loud all the time ...

No fan control through Asus Smartdoctor, RBE, ...

I can't believe Asus did such a thing in this time and age.
They do claim that the card runs 15°C cooler than the stock model! :ohwell:

Well I wouldn't buy the 4670 in the first place.
