Are reference RTX Super cards good?

I can't decide what RTX 2070 Super to go with. Are the reference cards quiet and cool? Or should I go for a 3 fan card from like Gigabyte?

I would go with an aftermarket card since they usually have higher boost clocks and better temps/acoustics.

Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Gigabyte RTX2080 Aorus Extreme / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

Any of the aftermarket ones are decent, quieter and cooler than the FE. Unless you value the looks, there's really no point in it.

As a wise master once said, 

Put as much effort into your question as you would expect a stranger to add to their answer!

They used to get the better chips. Not sure if they still do.

It really comes down to the price.

3 fans card allows your rig to run with less noise. Now if you do overclock the crap out of it, you’ll have to change the fan curve to something more aggressive. Then there’s nothing you can do to tame the noise (aside from an open loop with 2 rads).
