Hi, i have the 2 gig version of this card, the one with the single fan and i'm planning to upgrade to either a 670 or 680. Does anyone know statistically how loud my card gets? I'd like to get the quietest 670 or 680 possible for my hackintosh :)

According to Tom's Hardware Graphics Chart:

Since XFX is like the reference edition. The card will be around 47.6 Db at load.

I've checked the 670 sound levels between a ASUS and Gigabyte:

ASUS: 25 dB at load.
Gigabyte: 32 dB at load (39 dB at load for Tom's Hardware).

Hope that helps :)
