Hi all,

So I'm set on purchasing a 6600XT and deshrouding it with my two NFA12x25. After scouring them I've narrowed it down to:
  1. MSI Gaming X
  2. PowerColor Red Devil
  3. Gigabyte Gaming OC Pro
All look to have easily removable fans with a flat heatsink. Unfortunately, no triple slot/ bigger heatsink 6600xt exist, but I have a fan shroud to prop up the fans closer to the heatsink.

I've attached pictures of all of them, which do you think would be best? My main goal, is silence.

Pictures of the three shrouds:
Side question: would a 3060 be better for deshrouding?

Why though? Why would you bother deshrouding a 6600xt? The tdp of that card is already low enough that most two-fan coolers and all the 3 fan coolers are morebthan enough to keep the card cool?
