Since apparently you can't install a silent Zalman cooler or something with the Hercules cards because of the RAM heatsink, I would like to know how noisy the Hercules 9800 non-pro is on its own, like will you hear it over other things in your PC or is it rather silent. Is it true that the Hercules 9800 NP is louder then there 9600 Pro, cause the 9800 cards need more cooling?! I would like to buy the 9800 NP for games, but only if it is not too loud, like how would it compare to a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB drive in idle mode for instance to get an idea, or perhaps give an estimate of db (most people say everything below 30db is considered silent).

I just don't want to buy something that turns out to be very loud in my system, cause sometimes you hear it's the videocard that is the loudest part in a system but I don't know how that is with these Hercules 9800 NP cards. Anybody who has the Hercules 9800 (NP) and perhaps also had the 9600 Pro in order to compare?!

Thanks in advance for all good feedback!!

Mike.
