  1. Can you hook up the 3pin connector on the card directly to the mobod so the mobod can control the fan speed?

    as long as the wires long enough and your motherboard has a spare 3 pin slot, than the answer to your question is yes, you can,

    While technically possible, it might not be advisable. The GPU temperature is different than the CPU temperature and the mobo temp sensor will control the fan speed relative to the CPU temperature only. Your GPU could be overheating but as long as the CPU temperature is okay, the graphics card fan will not respond to the GPU overheating.

    But on the program that comes with the msi board the gpu runs on a different setting so it is adjusted differently if I understand it right.

    Is the program you are talking about for an MSI motherboard or MSI graphics card? If it is for the motherboard, I have an MSI motherboard too. Which program is it?

    Is there a gpu that is quieter than the others? Any particular brand name?

    Core Center monitors motherboard items like fans, CPU temperature, northbridge temperature and voltages. It doesn't do anything with the graphics card.

    You could use a probe to monitor it, but then that leaves using a Program almost absolute.
