My advice to those interested on this card then, would be to avoid it like the plague or stick an aftermarket solution on it. I'm sick of that cooler (512 mg x1900XT here). Bloody sick, I tell you. It's not that bad when idling, but it's simply unbearable when gaming.
Heck, I even have to be very careful when I turn the PC on at mornings, because it's so bloody noisy at startup that it can easily wake my fiancee up (I get up 1 hour earlier to go to work), and that's being on the other side of the apartment.
Now...that XFX 7950GT with passive cooling :drool: That is a card worth the price... I'm not buying a DX10 card until there's some passively cooled 8800GT.
