    Any know what the noise levels on the x1900's are like?

    From the website review i've read, they can be annoyingly loud?

    What happened to custom coolers from asus or HIS?

    Somewhat noisy at startup (as fan spins at 100%) & when fan runs at 100%.
    However you can setup what temps & at what speed fans run, so it is reasonably quiet.

    The conclusion I came to from my scientific test (going to friend's house and listening to his) was that in your average room, it will not be heard. If you have an unusually quiet room, are tuned to noise or sleep next to your PC, then you will hear it, yes.

    Not mine but a mates & its Asus.

    I didnt want it to sound like its noisy as its not - as the fan never really gets to 100%.
