    Does anyone have "HIS Excalibur ATI Radeon X1900 XT ICEQ 3 SILENT Heatpipe 512MB" ?

    Could anyone tell me the temperature and noise reductions on this card, just wanted to see people with real experiences as i am planning to purchase this card, or is it better just to get a regular x1900XT with the stock cooling - i heard it is very loud... :confused:

    i'm after a quieter system, and getting a x1900XT sort of contradicts that, this card might help somewhat, im getting a Seasonic PSU as well, as my Hiper was just so noisy in the end.

    atick with your 7800GTX until direct x 10 comes out

    but i do have this card and the temperature difference of the card is really nothing, but it is very quiet and reduces system temps compared to stock coolers

    It should keep it quieter, but there is also ...

    I just sold my 7800GTX recently, the Sapphire Toxic X1900XT-X is out of my budget anyway and rather go for a XT than XT-X, and i hopefully will be receiving the HIS Excalibur card today, i heard the temperature difference wasn't that much, but it was the noise level which was most important.
    By the way what is the nosie level like on load?

    tbh I have never considered my standard x1900xt to be noisy but maybe I am just deaf!!!
