5 out of 5 eggsGreat Noiseless Card

Pros: Good, solid noiseless nVidia card with dual monitor support and solid drivers for Windows 7 x64 and Linux. Unless you're a hotshot gamer and maybe even then, this will serve you well, and maybe even then.

Cons: Can't really think of any, except that it takes up two slots.

Other Thoughts: Heatsink is fairly hot to the touch but thermocouple shows it's cool. But make sure you have a properly closed case, it depends on air being drawn in from the back by the case fans. And don't bother with Asus-supplied drivers, just download the latest driver from nVidia.

5 out of 5 eggsPeace at last

Pros: Fast, high performance card that can handle almost any game or application with ease, but without the noise! Dual DVI or HDMI with special adapter. As fast as anything in this price bracket.

Cons: Bigger sized card, takes up two full ATX length slots. HDMI audio requires sound card with digital out - audio device not built in (Can be a good thing if you have a high end soundcard all ready).

Other Thoughts: The primary source of noise in my computer has been the Video Card for for years. Most of the fanless cards cards have been lower end cards that were a big step down and just won't cut it for the occasional game. This was a good solution that didn't break the bank, is very fast, supports hi resolutions, dual monitors, and even HDMI.

5 out of 5 eggspuurrrrfect !

Pros: dead silent 9600 ! rock solid construction ! excellent performance for a passive cooled ge, looks and fits awesome on my gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3p,no temp probs for me ! and at the current market price, un-beatable value !

Antec p128
Gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3p
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz
Corsair XMS2 DHX 4 GB
Western Digital 300gb velociraptor
Seagate 1tb Barracuda

M-audio delta/66

Cons: none ! this is the perfect silent graphic card solution, with impressive power! (for someone who knows exactly what they just purchased!)

Other Thoughts: for those of you considering this card, to avoid some of the well avoidable issues some other users may have with this unit, simply do a little simple homework. measure your cases capacity to insure this bad boy will fit your set-up efficiently, and just make sure you have descent air-flow, and you will be a happy customer !

5 out of 5 eggsBest silent card available

Pros: -Great speeds, comparable to an 8800gts and only a little slower than the LOUD 9800gtx it replaced.
-GDDR3 memory.
-SILENT! That's the biggest reason for buying it.
-Keeps reasonably cool considering no fan.
-2xDVI (and S-Video), used to seeing DVI/VGA on silent cards
-No stuttering whatsoever in normal streaming video/movie/etc. tasks.

Cons: -Much warmer than cards with fans (duh!)
-Not a top-of-the-line card anymore, better ones available for this price, but all with loud fans.
-Large card in all dimensions, may not fit into your small case.

Other Thoughts: I love to game, mostly classic arcade and console games at 1920x1080, not quite so many newer games (most of what I play is from 2007 at the latest), so this card handles everything flawlessly and makes it look great. However, I DO listen to and record/edit a lot of music on my computer, so I needed something that didn't interfere with my audio.

I have a shuttle SP35PV2 system and this card fits in there with no problem. Even though the shuttle design keeps the processor ICE cold (Q6700 at 39C while under load, LOL!), it doesn't do an awesome job cooling the rest of the parts off. So even with that in mind, this card stays at 55C idle/67-70C under heavy load, which is still in a very acceptable range. I've never seen it go above 70C even with games absolutely cranked, so this card is in it for the long haul.


My rig:
Shuttle Prima XPC
Intel Q6700
Asus silent 9600GT
2x 4gb Patriot Viper DDR800 RAM

5 out of 5 eggsWarm but quiet.

Pros: Decent speed video card for most but serious gamer's. Fanless ... Silent. Huge heat sink, with multiple heat pipes. Dual DVI. HDMI adapter included. HDMI Audio / Sound Card audio adapter cable included. Nvidia's drivers actually work well in Vista 64 Bit.

Cons: Big card ... takes up two slots (unavoidable with this size heat sink / pipes). Definately NOT going to fit in a SFF (Small Form Factor) chassis. Included HDMI CEC audio adapter cable might not have the right pin outs for your audio device.

Other Thoughts: I've purchased several of these for silent PC builds, and they've all worked well. It would be nice if Asus would push this silent design up to some of their more recent chipsets.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent video card

Pros: Keeps cool. 40 with no load and 55 with load. That's assuming your case is well ventilated and other fans are causing the air to flow. Worked out of the box.

Cons: Not an issue in my case, but it is big.

Other Thoughts: I was very sceptical that a high end graphics card could be passively cool. However, this one works just fine. You just need to make sure that there is some air flow over its gills. For example, if I open my case up, air no longer flows through the pci slots. It then runs about 10 degrees warmer.

5 out of 5 eggsYahoo - NO NOISE

Pros: SILENT - good specs for the price point. SLI dual card installation and works as supposed to. Have silent case fans that move air so temps stay within normal range.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These cards are HUGE. Be certain that your MOBO is laid out so these cards don't block anything like SATA connectors, USB & Firewire MOBO headers, audio card, fan connectors and RAM. The case I used has a removable MOBO tray and I used a full ATX Asus MOBO - so it all fit with a little planning. Fortunately, the dual SLI configuration has a PCI slot in-between for air flow. I think it might get pretty hot if you used a 3-way SLI.
