I am in process of buying new HW.
I wonder if this is going to work:
Let's say I have ASUS GTX 680 on Motherboard ASUS P8Z77-M PRO.
Now I want to connect GTX 680 using HDMI cable and Onboard VGA using DVI cable to the same monitor.
The reason for that is that I hate noise.
1. When in 2D apps I am gonna use Onboard VGA along with no turning fan on GTX 680.
2. When gaming I am gonna use GTX 680 with all fans around the case blowing (don't hear them then:))
My question is:
Is it possible via BIOS or different way to totally disable GTX 680 so it is dead silent with no fans running on it while it is installed and fully connected to MB?
While in 2D my rig is fanlessso I am very well hearing GPU. I've got (really quiet) Gigabyte GTX 560Ti now and even it's on 1680 RPM on idle it makes a lot of noise. I am asking this question because I don't know what the new MBs are capable off.
What I am trying to do is to make office and gaming rig in one case.

You could use speedfan to turn the fan all the way down. Not sure if it will go all the way to 0 though.
As far as your other questions, no clue.
You could buy an aftermarket cooler though.
You can get something like what I just purchased. I bought the accelero S1 plus and attached a couple 92mm fans to it. You can use a fan controller to control the fans when not under heavy use. Using "silent fans" would also help a bit. Thats the best suggestion I can come up with.
