have not seen any software that can turn off fans, at 17% fanspeed(800rpm) my gigabyte windforce cooler its very silent to 70c but whould be nice if fans stopped at 65c, less dust over the years.

Why is this needed? My GPU fans run at 30% until 50C and are silent at that speed. I can't hear them at all. I'd rather my card stay at 40C when in desktop use than running it at 60C all the time, seems like it would be better for the longevity of the card.

This is just marketing in my opinion, below 65-70C most cards are whisper quiet if not inaudible due to case or CPU fans. The only reason to buy these would be 6GB VRAM, and that is really stretching it,
 
dont see the point, at 10-20% fan speet the fans are inaudible anyway. As soon as its under any load with 0% fan speed the fans will turn right back on again. Another flashy marketing gimmick for Asus to stick on their box.

no fan rpm mean no dust in gpu, and newer pc can turn of case fans as well. then its a idle passive cooling pc.
if some people cant hear the noise a pc makes, you live in a crappy noisy area and must move.

I think a can of compressed air once a month, or even once every 2 months can take care of your dust problem. Also if you have good fans (Noctua or some of the Corsairs too) and keep them either on a fan controller or a low/ ultra-low noise adapter, any high quality PSU that has proper ventilation and sound dampening foam, you can have a near silent PC

doubt anyone would heard it spinning at <30% unless you stick your ear to it. practically not useful at all and you had better no charge for extra just so because it can run at 65c at zero fan speed

TBH, I have a GTX670 running at 10% which makes little to no sound-
CPU, Case fans, all very low.
Meanwhile, it's really the PSU making all the noise -
and that's even with a seasonic X series....

My bad, it wasn't the PSU making the noise....
it was my HDD...

This should be standard most GPU can safely iddle fanless. Correct me if I am wrong don't fan motors use up more quickly if the go start stop sequence with high frequency ?
