GIGABYTE passively cools HD 4850

If it's UVD 2 + effortless performance + dead silence you seek (the perfect HTPC/gaming companion?) then this could well be your answer. To ensure stability isn't in any way compromised with its fanless design, clockspeeds have been left alone at their default ratings.
