I have this, and I can say its the quietest card I've ever owned, even when playing graphics heavy games. Never seen the fans above 44%, they are quieter than my case fans even at that speed, and my case fans are all silent 1200 rpm 120mm fans.


Anyone care to chime in?
They say it's about 8db quieter than reference....

Have you ever heard a 1200rpm 120mm fan? Can you call it quiet? Personally I can't do it, at all.

At anyway, the MSI TwinFrozr II gives around 24dB at gaming load for the GTX 560Ti, and around 29dB at gaming load for the GTX 580 (with both around 30-31dB under FurMark).
I guess their GTX 570 might stay in between, while at idle it might perform 2-3dB quieter than the reference design: but take also note that while the GTX 580 is noticeably quieter than Nvidia's reference design, the GTX 560Ti is not so (the reference design is up to 7dB quieter at load).

Obviously you may try to tune fans profile using MSI Afterburner, but then as usual YMMV.

That's pretty good - anything around 25-27db under load is not bad at all

The 570 should be more similar to the 580 than to the 560, so I think if in case 28-29dB should be more probable than a 25dB mark.
Afterburner may help to game a bit more quietly, but take also note than currently most of 570s goes in the 31-37dB range at peak load, a really uncomfortable level.

I had the 580 TF that I returned for some crashing issues. Apparently on the MSI forums, there is a BIOS update that resolves that and also allows a lower minimum fan speed setting. At the previous minimum fan setting, the Frozr was certainly quieter than reference 580 or 6970 cards I tried at idle. It was still clearly audible and the loudest thing in my case, though. With a reduction in the minimum, I suspect it will be barely audible in a good case that doesn't have vents at head level. At a gaming load, it will still ramp up to a modest volume.

The card I have now, the Asus 580 Direct CU, is louder at idle. On the plus side, I can keep it manually at the minimum fan speed and the temps don't go beyond the mid 60s, even with the worst gaming load I tried on either card (admittedly not a really intensive game). That's about 10C cooler than the Twin Frozr, even allowing it to ramp up to higher RPMs on a fan profile.

oki, so as you can see its already at 30%, 1080 rpm...
( after bios edit)

With this picture :

I actually have a GTX460, at 30%, fans run at 1300rpm, i am thinking of buying this graphic card, fans will probably be more quieter with an 43% performance increase (3Dmark Vintage).
