The ECS GTX460 Black card is the quietest and coolest. With a $20 rebate, it is just over $200.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814134117
The ECS Black runs a full 16c degrees cooler than the MSI Cyclone (!!!) and a full 9c cooler than the MSI Hawk. At the same time, it runs at 37dB at load compared to the MSI Cyclone and Hawk at 43dB.http://www.guru3d.com/article/ecs-geforce-gtx-460-black-review/8
Of all the GTX460's tested at Guru3d, the ECS Black beats them all in heat and noise levels.http://www.guru3d.com/article/ecs-geforce-gtx-460-black-review/1
"ECS Elite Group also released a handful of GeForce GTX 460 cards, based on the reference design with a slight overclock, yet also a BLACK series graphics card which is a factory overclocked model with an Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo PRO cooler sitting on top of that GPU. Now we've already seen a couple of models based on this cooling solution, but the ECS card really is something special.
We spot amazingly cool temperatures of the GPU versus a downright nice factory overclock. And for the freaks, if you like to overclock a little yourself and utilize software like MSI's Afterburner then this product can be overclocked even further, really high actually, yet still have a product that remains 100% silent."
