more fans on cpu=quieter?

#1LethalPuppyPosted 8/20/2013 12:44:52 PM(edited)
right now my gpu has a single fan and it makes a lot of noise during gaming (temperature is OK though). I'm thinking of replacing it with a 7950. Seeing how most modern high end gpu has double fans, is it also quieter?

edit: I meant "more fans on gpu"...

Yeah the fans suck the noise out

It may end up quieter if those fans are running at lower speeds, or if they're of a quieter design but that's not necessarily going to be the case.

Yes. I had a GT 630 which would get really loud under load, but now that I got an Asus GTX 770, even under load, it's really quiet.

you could try an aftermarket solution

I use

It's maybe $40 and it's very quiet and will lower temps

Is TC serious?!? Adding more fans will make it quieter? This is a joke right?

speaking of which TC, if you're using the fan that came with the phenom THAT is the problem

One fan spun up to 100% versus two fans spun up to 50%?

... or potentially, one crummy fan spun up to 100% versus two better-quality fans spun up to 30%?

I can see it. My PC has two intake fans, one primary exhaust fan and also an exhaust fan for my H50 (plus whatever's on my GPU) and it's pretty quiet unless it's spun up due to heat, which rarely happens the way I have it set up now. In the past I've had computers with fewer fans become pretty loud under load.
