hi, im very shortly going to build a pc and deeply looking into the 660ti. theres just one question i need to be answered as i am going to want my pc to be decently quite so like around 25-30 dba. the options for the 660ti are mostly non-reference but the reference ones are much cheaper and if they dont have the annoying buzzing/humming motor kind of noise that the gtx 670 reference cards have eg : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UysDJc_820Y ill go with them but as i cant find any answers on the web im completely clueless. so any help is much appreciated :) 

Thanks

I have no experience with either of the reference models so you may want to hold out for a definite answer, but if your after quiet I would say avoid them and go for a nice aftermarket cooler design

I think you'll find your answer here http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_660... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Ti_Power... Quote: Fan noise in idle is amazingly low; you won't be able to hear the card in your computer outside of gaming. The fan ramps up just a little bit under load - still staying pretty quiet. Of all the GTX 660 Ti cards reviewed today, only the ASUS DC II is even quieter.
