    Interesting, Asus are not the only company doing fanless 6770s, Gigabyte has one too:

    Why are these pictures so noisy feels like they have been rendered with a path tracing algorithm having convergence problems or not enough samples

  • Athlonite

    get rid of that stupid looking plastic cowling and add a scythe slipstream 700rpm fan and I’d dare say the cooler would work much better that 99c will kill that card real quick

  • JEswe

    that card is not going to last just get a DirectCU II GTX 570 or sumthing along those lines it’s quiet even on 100% and is power full as hell.

  • Athlonite

    @JEswe yes but costs a butt load more I’d say this thing is made specially for HTPC cases take alook there’s no CF connector
