    These units are not quiet, probably one of the noisiest graphics cards I have ever heard. Do you have the option to return it?

    Got the X52 and G12, i'll be putting the fan/radiator in the front of the case, but do the fans blow inwards?

    Its upto you really, depending on how you attach the fans to the radiator. But generally, the fans seem to be set to blow against and through the rad rather than pull through it. In terms of blowing into or out of the case, most seem to have them blowing in at the front, and blowing out at the rear or top.

    I find it best if possible to put the radiator in the front, and I have a CPU radiator at the back as the GPU always runs hotter than the CPU so fresh air on the GPU radiator is best IMHO. Even better if you can push/pull with a set of identical fans.

    Small card, small fans, its going to be loud simply to dissipate all that heat. If you want quiet don't go MATX.

    Thanks, ordered a larger case now. I couldn't fit the bloody 1080ti with the PSU as the G12 is too large. Thought I would order a Corsair 750 to find out its got the shortest cables ever......!!!

    Bloody hell the X52 and G12 has made a massive difference! I ordered a larger Thermaltake case so much more room, barely hear that its on!
