In the mean time here is one of my favorite review site's measurements of the noise levels of both cards MSI Lightning and Asus DCII, I should note that even though TPU has the Lightning listed as louder than the reference I believe I have seen other reviews that say it is a little bit quieter than the reference design, I just don't remember where I say them and TPU is my go to review site 90% of the time.

EDIT: I'm the slowest typer out of the five people watching this thread right now LOL flipping
Would be interesting to know in those tests if the fans under load are spinning at 100% or less

those arent 120mm anyways. Close, but they're 92mm.

EDIT: With a price range of 400-450 that leaves you with reference models so I'd just get the best warranty which would be EVGA. Still $480 up front but $450 after rebate

Actually since I live in germany the prices are a bit different as by you. I think.
I can actually get every model except that Zotac one as of now.
So I'm basically looking for a factory overclocked card which is pretty quiet.

uh OP... just a minor suggestion you could choose to ignore but why not sink some money into a new CPU instead? a nice i5 2500k and a motherboard will push your 5870 abit more and may i remind you that card is not bad at all. stacks up with the 6950 on some occasions.

So yep, I've preordered the GTX 580 Lightning. Going to grab it in a week at my local Computer store. Hope it will work great.

Thanks everyone for your opinions
