    Default 8800GTS: The next Dustbuster?

    I stopped by a friend's house to shoot the shit, who recently SLI'ed some
    eVGA 8800GTS's.
    I arrived and knocked on the door, his wife let me in.
    I went to his den where the PC was, and the first thing I noticed, was the
    infamous sound of a Dustbuster{5800U}!

    He was playing F.E.A.R :E.P and in the middle of a firefight.
    The setup is in a old CM Wavemaster and chocked full of fans and drives.

    I shoulden't be able to hear the hsf on the 8800GTS's over the game and the
    other hardware

    I had him mute the game so I could here them{8800GTS's} ramp up and down. Just horrible whoosing sound on anything except 2D, where their quiet

    What worries me, their not OC
    So you know what's going to happen when they are

    I might hold off on one of the 8800GTS's for now untill I can find a nice hsf
    for it
    Of course these are eVGA brand, I wonder if other brands are as Dustbuster likeable

    Anybody else with experience on the said card, comments welcome

    i dunno, it doesnt seem loud to me. I got other fans in the case I can hear besides the GTS. But then again I'm not much of silent freak so it could be loud to others.

    Its the first I have read where the GTS or GTX is as loud as you claim. Solo or in SLI form. If it was truly as loud as the infamous 5800U I think we'd have heard of it long before now. Sound is subjective though. Some people have a different threshold for it than others.

    Could it be he had the reg hack for overclocking his 8800GTS and had the "run fans at full RPM" box checked?

    If you mean the fan daemon is 100% in all modes, no , it's Nvidia ref.
    They are silent in everything but 3D not OC., no coolbits as yet.

    "Coolbits." Yeah... that's what I was trying to think of.

    Well... I should be benchmarking this dual 8800GTX build tomorrow. I'll tell you if it's loud.

    I can't wait to plug it into the Weibo and see what it pulls from the wall.

    I'd love to think this Ultra 1kW is overkill.
