Noise and 2D Quality
Unfortunately, this card from EVGA isn’t good in terms of noise characteristics. Being equipped with a reference cooler, it is as noisy as the ordinary GeForce 7900 GT The small fan is always working at a rather high speed making the card easily distinguishable among the other noises from a working system.
However, the fan rotation speed cannot be reduced: the card doesn’t have any fan speed management tools. But even if there was a possibility to do it, you would hardly be able to take advantage of it anyway. The reference cooler of GeForce 7900 GT has very small heat dissipation area, so slowing down the fan could have affected the cooling efficiency of the system.
Anyway, if you want to make your e-GeForce 7900 GT CO SuperClocked noiseless, consider replacing its cooler with something more efficient, like Zalman VF900-Cu or VF-700Cu/AlCu, for example.
All GeForce 7900 GT seem to be manufactured at the same fab, so the high image quality in 2D mode provided by the EVGA card is not at all surprising. The EVGA e-GeForce 7900 GT CO SuperClocked delivers a superb-quality image in all display modes supported by our Dell P1130 and P1110, including 1800x1440@75Hz.
