Gigabyte has a whole line of "silentpipe" cards on its website, but they just don't exist when it comes to on-line retailers even like three months after the initial press release. Anyone have any idea what's holding these cards up from hitting retail? Anyone actually seen one of these cards for sale?

I've got a gigabyte 6600 in my system now and it's by far the loudest component in my system right now. I don't want to spend $40 on an aftermarket cooling solution so I want to sell my current 6600 and replace it with a 6600 silentpipe card, but I'm getting pretty frustrated waiting for them to appear.

Here's a link to the gigabyte silentpipe site:
http://global.giga-byte.com/VGA/FileLis ... ntpipe.htm
Venice 3000+ @ 2.43 (9x270) w/modded 7700alcu
2GB (2x1GB) OCZ pc3200 GX XTC
Chaintech VNF4 Ultra w/Zalman chipset heatsink
XFX 7600GT @ 590/1600
