edit: I would go with a Twin Frozr II or an EVGA 580DS if you can, strictly for temperature sake. It's only a marginal difference in price (I believe the Twin Frozr is the same price?) for 5-8c difference in temps.
Temps aren't bad on the reference version and it's easier to find waterblocks for them if you ever want to watercool down the road compared to non-references.
I have 580 SLI and have yet to see temps above 82 when benching @ 900MHz.
As a single card it never peaked 67C. This is with a 1% fan/ 1*C fan profile.
Fan doesn't really get loud until over 75*C.
