Meanwhile, PNY's decision to use the stock Nvidia cooler looks unfortunate, since it combines high temperatures with relatively high noise levels, despite the GTX 660 Ti's modest power draw
TR (GTX760 review):
I wish the same could be said for the GTX 760's puny reference cooler, which is just like the 660 Ti's. That cooler doesn't register too strongly on our decibel meter, but subjectively, it's worse than the numbers would seem to indicate. The 760's blower makes a rough sound that grates on my ears, and I find it hard to believe the smooth hiss of the Radeon HD 7990 somehow generates more decibels worth of noise.
