Cracking price for a mid-range graphics card. The main attraction to me is that its totally silent as there is no fan required for the CPU.

If like me you connect your PC to a monitor and HDTV and play the odd game this is fantastic.

Same price over at Ebuyer too. Personally I'd rather give my hard earned cash to Amazon.

ive voted hot as its the cheapest price for that card....

but i think if you want a gaming card you'd need something better than a 4670

and if i you want a silent htpc card for media decoding duties a 5450 would be a better bet...

I had one of these and returned it as in a low airflow case it hit over 100C.
It's quite easy to cool a relatively low power card as this without using such a large heatsink. You just need to add a low noise fan and run it at around 700 rpm or so at which point it is silent.
I paid just over £60 from Scan about 18 months ago so surprised it’s still at this price.

I've got the 1GB one last year for about the same price. I can run newer games with decent detail to make them playable at 1650x1050 no probs!

Only prob with mine is that it's noisey right now just in windows as the room is quite warm... this one would have done nicely.. :D

Blimey :w00t: 100 degrees! Was that under full load or just at idle?

I have a very low noise system so it has low case airflow hence the high temp under load.
Most people will likely have higher airflow so shouldn’t have the same issue.
I thought it worth mentioning as it’s a fanless card it will appeal to people building a quiet system.
I find that it’s generally quieter to use lower rpm case fans plus a fan on the GPU (unless it’s very low power) rather than go for a fanless GPU and then be forced to crank up the case fan speeds.

The same goes for CPUs. Some people get all excited about the idea of having a fanless CPU heatsink but I prefer to use a silent fan on a good quality heatsink as it makes cooling the case easier and it can help to cool the motherboard components which can improve its life span.
You don’t need that much airflow to cool even fairly high powered systems.

Yes has this card nice kit and still currently the fastest available passive card (until the powercolor 5750 go green edition jumps the water). Also am amazed Sapphire haven't chucked this cooling solution on a 5670 yet.
#15
It's depressing that the price of these has barely changed since they came out. Still, a solid media center card.
#16
Great passive card - got two myself but the price at Scan was only £50 including vat 6 months ago.
#17
Not going to vote, you could get this for £45 in one of Scans today only a couple of months back.

It has went up in price as they are no longer mass produced.

Get a 5xxx card.

How do you get gfx fans running slower?

I've sold my pc, but did manage to get it virtually silent and it worked great as a media pc, but I had to get massive fans for the case and a passive quite basic gfx (x1650 with arctic passive cooler fitted). It never occured to me to slow down the gfx fan...because I didn't know it could be done.
Any tips would be much appreciated.
#19
This has been the same price for quite a while... but its the currently the cheapest so I suppose its Hot...

This used to be the fastest card you can buy that doesn't need a dedicated power supply connector. It has since been beaten by the Nvidia Geforce GT240 and ATI Radeon 5670 (not by a huge margin though) - Although fanless versions of these cards are expensive from what I've seen.

So basically If your looking for a decent mid-range graphics card that doesn't make any noise and you don't want to buy a new power supply - Go for this. This runs most pc games from the last few years perfectly as long as you have a decent CPU. If you want to play new releases then you might want something better than this card.

I bought this card but it wouldn't fit in my Antec NSK2480 case because of the height of the card due to the heatsink. I have since bought an Nvidia GT240 but the noise of the fan was annoying so I put on a Zalman VF1000 cooler and turned off the fan!

If its ATI just do it in the Catalyst Control Centre.
#21
What I like about this type of passive card is that the heat sink sits on the
CPU side. That way you can have the CPU Fan (for non standard heat sinks)
in between therefore cooling both.

The only disappointing bit about this one is that it doesnt have much heat sink
on the that side compared to others I have had.
#22
Has been at this price on Ebuyer for a few weeks, I bought it there and installed it last week. If I had known it would go hot I would have posted it :) Probably quicker delivery with Amazon?

I run a fanless system and passive HD 5670s still aren't popping up over here so this appealed to me to replace my 7300GT, mostly to play StarCraft 2 beta :thumbsup:

I reckon yours must have been faulty (HS must bot have been making proper contact with the GPU or faulty sensor). I run a completely fanless system (passive PSU too) in an Antec P180 and never see temps that high :shock:

Anyone who wants to monitor their PC's CPU and Graphics temperature checkout speccy - http://www.piriform.com/speccy

By the same company as Crap Cleaner and Recuva. Its not as comprehensive as Everest but its as accurate reading temperatures and is totally free.

Good program :thumbsup:

I usually use Speedfan though as it finds more sensors and allows you to control fan speeds etc.

Also CystalDiskInfo for hard drive diagnostics - shows a power on and hours counter for your hard drives which is useful

I've found a cheaper 4670, but not silent like this card for £52.69 (free delivery too).

http://www.ginger6.com/asus-512mb-radeon-4670-pcie-hdmi-retail-p-32681.html?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Shopping

I usually point people in the direction of a 4650 card for budget systems, various deals at various times, currently here looks good:

http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/XFX+ATI+Radeon+HD+4650+1024MB+DDR2+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=34725&source=googleps

£35.24, plus delivery (£7 to rural scotland, possibly less for elsewhere).

2 have sold in the last 5 minutes, 8 left as I type.

The 4650 with DDR2 is about half as fast as a 4670 with DDR3, so you get what you pay for.
#27
For a little more money I'd be inclined to recommend the 4850. they can be picked up for around £70 but in very limited supplies.

http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Arianet%2FXFX+ATI+Radeon+HD+4850+512MB+GDDR3+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=38671&source=googleps

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=BG-052-XF&utm_source=froogle

or for £75 here:

Typically these card will give 100% performance increase over the 4670, but again it's not silent and you will need a reasonably good PSU, 500w or higher. I've seen these destroy lesser branded 400w & 450w PSUs, so it's a false economy to get this unless your PSU can cope or you're willing to spend another £25 for a reasonable budget PSU with a dedicated 6 pin PCIe power supply. Quality brand name 400w & 450w PSU will run this card fine.

So a 4650 for - £35

100% faster 4670 - £53 - £58

100% faster again 4850 - £70

They are very power hungry and hot running cards though, you won't find a passive cooled one unless you add a massive after market heatsink (like mine has which blocks the all the other PCIE slots!).

i dont know why but the price of graphics cards has increased so much just since January. i bought a gigabyte 1gb 5670 for £39.99 and now they are selling for bloody £60.

to rub salt in my wounds i bloody sold it for £36 on ebay because i thought i didnt need it. But now i need it again :(

The pound is sitting at it's lowest level against the dollar, currently £1 = $1.44.

At the turn of the year it was £1 = $1.65.

Traditionally it's been £1 = $1.95 - $2.00.

This means anything that's traded in dollars (petrol, PC componenets etc) is 30% more expensive than we're used to. If only we'd joined the Euro, things would be the same price as 3 years ago, but for the past 2 years we would have things 20% cheaper.
#31
I just ordered one. I just hope my 305w PSU is up to the job, if not I'll get another PSU.
