It occupies four expansion slots
Another video card with a Noctua cooler has appeared on the market. And she’s incredibly fat again.
Sycom introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Silent Master, which received Noctua fans. As you can see in the photo, without fans this is a two-slot adapter, but with them it already takes up four slots. Actually, there are simply no high-performance models with Noctua fans (at least for three expansion slots), although the same Sycom previously released a two-slot RTX 4060 Ti .

Like the lower-end cards, the new product uses Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans and a special frame for mounting them, developed by Nagao.
As the name implies, the new product should stand out primarily for its quiet operation. Compared to the MSI model, according to Sycom’s own measurements, the noise level is much lower: 43.6 versus 55.1 dB. Temperatures are also lower, but not as significantly: 74.5 versus 79.3 degrees.
