Tags: Radeon Graphics Product Last response: January 1, 2010 12:05 PM in Graphics & Displays Share martinrunge January 1, 2010 6:43:24 AM Hi, I have just ordered a system with the following specs: MSI P55-CD53 Intel P55 DDR3 socket 1156 Arctic Alpine 11 Pro S775/1156 95w Arctic Fan 12 120mm 1500RPM 23db Intel Core i5 750 2.66 GHz 8MB 95W Box Socket 1156 Kingston Value RAM DDR3 4GB PC3-1333 kit CL9 WD Caviar Green WD10EADS 1000GB SATA 32MB- Antec Sonata 3 Earthwatt 500Watt HD + eSata fron It is supposed to be a quiet pc and therefore I have also ordered a: Club 3D Radeon PCI-E HD5750 Passive 1GB DDR5 HDMI However, I´m not that familiar with passive cooling and I´m a little concerned about the heat it creates and therefore having second thoughts. Has anybody tried this card yet, and if so could you please tell me how hot it gets in idle and during load and whether this is something to be concerned about?
