Yes that used to bother me too ... Especially when starting up the PC I thought an Harrier Jet was taking off besides me. That's why I decided to spend 200 euros more and got myself a water cooling kit Plus an EK Full cover GPU block. Now the card runs in silence even at load, and never gets warmer than 48° C under load Thanks, I will test this later. Never heard of this tool before, but I'm very interested to try it out.
