Good thing: the stock fan now throttles up higher, regardless of BIOS switch (it's about 44% now, or approximately 2200 RPM's).
Which case are your using?
As I said before, I use Antec's P183v2, which has no stupid windows/meshes on the sides and has pretty thick multi-layered doors, so it is relatively quiet...
Anyway, I can't measure the noise anymore - I temporarily removed the card and put my old card back in. When the extra cooling components (I need better thermal glue and extra RAM heatsinks) will arrive and when the Mantle patch for BF4 will appear - I'll put it back. Or maybe put it in a spare system, not sure yet. Right now there is no good reason for continuing to use this card in its stock form (it is not faster than my current card but more hot and more noisy) and swapping stuff back-and-forth is pretty annoying.
