Anyone using a Sapphire Radeon X1950 GT?

If so, just how noisy is the fan on it?

I was going to order one, but that review has put me off. Or have Sapphire fixed the problem since then?

It's a longshot I know, but it can't do any harm to ask here!

If you're prepared to spend a bit more you could replace the stock heatsink and fan with one of these Thermalright V2 Copper coolers and fit a quiet fan click here

That's an option, but the extra cost would push the price above that of an X1950 Pro.

I have a standard Radeon X1800XT. It too is quite noisy, but I can't hear it when I'm playing a game. When I quit the game, it very quickly settles down to an acceptable level, but that's only my opinion.

Unfortunately, the X1950 GT's fan (when it was first introduced, anyway) stays on full speed all of the time. I just wanted to know if Sapphire had done anything about this.

It's irrelevant now, though, because I've ordered a silent HIS X1950 Pro! A bit more expensive, and my CPU will definitely bottleneck it, but at least it'll be quiet.
