"The DirectCU II cooler with its 0dB technology is something that's going to be appreciated by users wanting a quieter system. While the fans refraining from spinning at idle isn't anything new. What makes the STRIX card stand out is the fact that the fans also continue to not spin under low load environments. This means that if you're playing something a bit older, or just not all that intensive, the card continues to be silent. Combined with the right cooler and case, you could be gaming with solid FPS while your PC is nearly silent."
