I heard a couple rumors that they were loud...but that was when they were either like...beta or whatever. Some people dont really notice it that much, some might...i'd say your 8800's in SLI will beat it, personally. Unless you crossfire them.

The fan at 100% is extremely loud and sounds like a leaf blower. If you just leave the fan at stock settings, then it's barely noticeable.

It's not that loud in normal operation and in-game.

The fan only goes up to 30-31% while in-game and otherwise, it's quite inaudible.

At 100%, it's pretty much as loud as a blowdryer/leafblower if not louder.

The most I've seen mine get to was 30%, and that was after a few hours of Oblivion.
