XFX Cards are generally loud and pretty much rape your ears. I am not fimiliar with Sapphire products though, so I would wait for opinion from other overclockers.

OP that sapphire dual x is a good cooler. so its not worth to change the order. the xfx r9 280x does have a new improved cooler .

but nothing beats the asus dc2 cooler. if you can get that pick it up

"As impressive as the XFX card was at idle, it doesn’t begin to compare to the Asus card under load. We have a card that’s channeling nearly 250W of heat out and away on a sustained basis, and yet for all of that work it generates just 41.5dB(A) of noise on our testbed. This is simply absurd in the most delightful fashion. Most of the cards in our data collection idle at just 2dB lower than this, never mind noise under load. As a result this is incredibly close to being functionally silent; in the case of our testbed the Asus card isn’t even the principle noise source when it’s under load."
