Why do you need it passively cooled and what do you intend to use it for ?.

It's for use in my (gaming) HTPC. I bought a Radeon 4890 a couple of months ago but it is way too loud using the stock cooling.

Its just that you can buy a 4850 passive but then you still need a good airflow to keep the memory cool and you can actually end up with a louder slower system than if you look for a card with a good cooler ,
