Help - Replace gainward gts250, reason - noise

Hello guys :ange: !

I need your help on recommendating on a real quiet well performing graphic card.
Recently i baught the gainward gts 250 gpu, after installing the drivers and changing the fan speed to lowest, it's still too noisy for me.
I have this problem where even the slightest noise makes me wake up at nights and this manner really bothers me.
Do you know a graphic card that gives the similar performence
that is really quiet and satisfying..

Thanks a lot !

  1. When you reach that performance level in cards, it is hard to find totally quiet cards but here is a couple http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709+600029795+600007320+600007604&QksAutoSuggestion=&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Configurator=&IsNodeId=1&Subcategory=48&description=&Ntk=&CFG=&SpeTabStoreType=&srchInDesc= that have passive cooling and similar performance.
    Have you considered shutting down the machine when you are sleeping?

    thanks for your replay :D

    maybe the performance is the same but the price is higher,
    i thought maybe when im at desktop work or while the tempture is low ill work with the gpu fan is offline, is this recommended ? how do i shutdown the fan ?
  3. It is not recommended at all to shut down the fan! There are passive coolers out there that you could mount on the card. http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=2_&mID=105
  4. this noise driving me crazy ! i must replace this card ! someone help please ?
  5. Take it back to the store then. If you can't, contact Gainward tech support and RMA it.
