After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Completely silent hardware comes in handy in several situations.  The one we commonly associate with is the famed HTPC and low powered OEM style systems.  As it would turn out excess noise in either of these situations is often regarded as a bad thing.

    The Gigabyte Radeon HD 5750 Silent Cell happens to be a perfect solution for not only a low noise system but also can work well in a midrange gaming system where maximum framrates are not a primary concern.  The main draw to the HD 5750 Silent Cell is the complexly passive cooler but don't overlook some of the built in features such as full Direct X 11, Eyefinity, Crossfire, and a multitude of multimedia features to help you decode and playback HD movies in real time. 

    Overclocking potential of the HD 5750 is favorable, and even with minor tweaks you'll easily match the speed of Radeon HD 5770.  Combine that with the peace of mind that the longevity of the card will always be there since there are no moving parts to wear out.
