I disagree with you.

You see these cards are so damn noisy compared to the previous 200 series. I've two GTX 460, one of them has a faulty fan which sounds like a jet engine and the other doesn't have the same sound but it's still noisy.

If this cooler is not as noisy as the reference design coolers then I may consider buying one or two.

It still looks like it takes up 3 slots with fans installed. Sigh..... Scythe has the right idea! We need more coolers designed with closer PCIe slots in mind!

Interesting, HD5850 with reference cooler is perfectly silent even under heavy load. And that's in my uATX case where the fan is almost sticking out of the mesh side and every noise change is noticeable.
In normal case i'm sure i wouldn't be able to hear it. Are GTS 450 and GTX 460 really that noisy?

no, not by default (for most models), but if you overclock than temps go up and so does the fan speed and hence the noise :)

All the aftermarket fans that are worth buying take up 3 slots. It's just so much easier b/c thicker fans give you better cfm and static pressure for the size and speed. The only instance where I've seen a slim fan work is w/ MSI's twin frozr design and Gigabyte's dual fan design (which is like a carbon copy of MSI's twin frozr).

No thanks. I haven't come across a noisy GTX 460, and I certainly don't need to convert the video card into a three-slot product.
