Gigabyte HD6770 Silent Cell 1GB Review (passively cooled)

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are reviewing a new card from Gigabyte, the HD6770 Silent Cell, which is a passively cooled discrete graphics card built on a 2oz copper layer with full overclocking capabilities. Gigabyte also claim that temperatures with this design be reduced by 10% when compared against the reference solution. Is this an ideal graphics card for a low noise, performance PC?

In the last year, we have noticed a growing audience are becoming more aware of noise emissions, with many users actually waiting long after launch day for a partner to release a custom cooled version. There are a plethora of discrete designs available today for these users, comprising multiple fans, metal shrouds and copper heatpipes.
