Which Radeon 6850 manufacturer?

Hey,

I'm curious which manufacturer has the quietest PCB board?

I have a 8800gts 320mb EVGA manufactured and the circuitry is extremely noticeable under load (buzzing, whirring etc).

I want to upgrade to something that has a quieter PCB board. The non reference design 6850's look like they'll have a quiet fan, but which one will have the quietest PCB board?

More about which radeon 6850 manufacturer
  1. My guess is the MSI Cyclone, they go out of there way to advertise their non-buzzing ferrite chokes and military class components or whatever, but it's just a guess I don't know where you would find research on noise levels of the PCB independent of the coolers.
  2. XFX Play Hard........
  3. GIGABYTE, MSI, XFX or Sapphire
  4. I have a HIS (kind of the cheapy version as I understand) that it only a couple days old but is super quiet (I was pleasantly surprised). I have not overclocked it, but at 7.7 on the windows experience scale I really don't see the need. I play crysis 1 with eyefinity (4800x900) high settings with no problems and no sound.

    Oh, and I only payed $138 from ebay (shipped from newegg)
