I have the IONITX-C-U and IONITX-B-E both in M350 cases. Bottom line,
they run too hot to go without a fan, IMO. Watching TV (OTA or HD-PVR)
will push the GPU temp over 85C and into the red on the nvidia-settings
gui. I have since invested in one of these fans for each case:
Scythe SY124010L Mini Kaze:
They are rated at 14 dBA and are available at newegg for $7 each at this
time (Look in Memory & Chipset Cooling). With one of these fans in each
case, my GPU temp tops off at ~65C. Although my FE's are no longer
silent, it was worth the investment, IMO.
