Just how loud is it (preferably in decibels), because I just received my 7600GT. Haven't installed it yet.

VF900 and VF700 will be excellent.


Owned both, easy to install, VERY quite, work great.

yea... they are loud. it has the same cooler as my card, but that gets drowned out by the other fans, so it is all good.

i suggest the zalmans if you are going to get a new cooler, quiet, and good.
