Finally! NVIDIA has adopted idle fan stop on their GeForce 30 Founders Editions. This has been one of the major reasons for people not to buy previous FE cards and also means AMD now has to follow through with it as well to stay competitive.
Gaming noise levels are "very quiet," which is impressive for a dual-slot Founders Edition card, especially considering the performance on offer. Such low noise levels on the FE will also make it difficult for custom designs to compete with the FE—I doubt they can be significantly quieter.
