It's good to see that unlike the NVIDIA Founders Edition, EVGA added the fan-stop-in-idle feature on their card, which provides the perfect noise-free experience during desktop work, Internet browsing, and light gaming.
While temperatures are impressive and better than on any other RTX 2080 Super we've tested so far, noise levels are decent but nothing to write home about. Essentially, the card matches Founders Edition noise levels at much lower temperatures. I would have wished for EVGA to use some of their cooler's headroom to give us a quieter fan at the same time, trading a few degrees for lower noise output.
