Question: EVGA Video cards with zero dBA configuration

Hi PCPP members!

I'm trying to figure out if EVGA does have any sort of "zero dBA" or "zero noise" configuration on their video cards. Other manufacturers, like ASUS or Gigabyte, have this feature which allows the video card fans to be completely stopped when the card is not stressed (let's say normal desktop usage). I'm really concerned about noise and I'm trying to design a full system in which all the fans do not spin when working with low loads.

Specifically, I'm looking at the EVGA RTX2060 ULTRA (https://es.pcpartpicker.com/product/xg66Mp/evga-geforce-rtx-2060-6-gb-xc-ultra-gaming-video-card-06g-p4-2167-kr) and I cannot see any feature like that in the manufacturer page (https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-2167-KR)

Any information will be welcome! Thanks!

That model does. Can see it mentioned in reviews, for example: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/GeForce_RTX_2060_XC_Ultra/31.html

Unlike the NVIDIA Founders Edition, EVGA's RTX 2060 XC Ultra does include the highly popular idle-fan-off feature we all love so much. This is a unique selling point over the FE, especially for people who want as quiet a card as possible.

With that said, at idle speeds, even the founders edition cards will barely be audible. Under load, the founders edition card is also quiet, amusingly slightly quieter then the 2060 Ultra you linked according to techpowerup and other sources by varying degrees, abit the Ultra has a notch higher performance.

i recently sold my EVGA RTX 2080 Ti Black. it did this when it was not under load as well. I'm highly certain that most of EVGAs cards allow for the fans stopping when they are below a certain temperature.
