Just like the Founders Edition, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 STRIX OC has fan stop, which is ideal for keeping system noise levels low outside of gaming as they shut down completely.
Gaming noise levels with the default BIOS are a bit high; it seems ASUS focused too much on temperatures. I would have preferred a quieter default setting. The ASUS dual-BIOS feature has you covered though, as the "quiet" BIOS is just a button switch away and runs much better noise levels that are very quiet, especially considering the performance this beast offers. Only the MSI Gaming X is quieter, but it's also running a lower power limit, which means less heat output for the cooler to handle.
