The only complaint on the 220 is the fan runs full speed no matter what temp the card has. It's not so terrible but without that sound the box would be totally quiet.

I have both a GT220 and a GT430 ; both with fans.

The GT220 is about twice the size as the GT430. The GT430 is supposed
to generate less heat, but they are both silent: I can't hear the fan.

What is the make and type is the GT430?

I recently bought a Zotac card for a medium sized case where I really can't waste a slot for fan/heatsink, but I think the fan is a bit noisy.
The card I bought is this one: http://www.zotac.com/pdbrochures/vga/master_zt-40602-10l_gt-430-1gb-ddr3_v1.1.pdf
