I have a new BFG 7800GT OC and it's currently the loudest component in my Shuttle SN26P. I don't need a second card (yet) so I think I may want to replace the stock fan with a quieter solution.
Now my question is, should I get the
1) Zalman VF700CU or the
2) Arctic Cooling Silencer Revision 5?
They're both similarly priced and received good reviews...
a) which is quieter
b) which is easier to install
c) which would fit better in a Shuttle sized case?
d) besides better cooling, would I notice a real difference in sound between my stock BFG cooler and one of these aftermarkets?
I hope this is the correct forum to ask these questions. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
