Fan on P650 PCIe

    For now I am using a P650 and I am very happy with it. Mainly Pgotoshop, and
    digiphoto in general. Considering an upgrade to a mobo with a PCIe slot and,
    certainly, without AGP. So here's the question: How loud is the fan in the
    PCIe version of the card? As a possible alternative can be APVe. How about
    it?

    Did you ever get an answer on the fan?

    Not yet.

    I didn't like the idea of testing myself. Actually, I did some
    investigation meanwhile. After searching, reading and coin flipping I
    have decided to go the ASUS Radeon x1300 Silent Edition (ie., fanless)
    route. I am not a gamer and have liked the Matrox quality, but somehow
    it happened, partly because of the fan. My new GPU gets somewhat hotter
    than I am used to, but so far no problems for more than a month.
