I recently built a new PC with a sapphire (dual fan) dirt 3 card (does anyone have pics? the vregs seem to run WAY hotter than my ref card, so I'm hesitant to OC it past the point that the vregs run @ 80C (880MHz in furmark), and i have my "old" pc out on the desk folding, and the back of the case is pointing at my head now, and it's definitely more noticeable, but still not what I would call annoying (if you've heard a reference 5770, that's a noise that make you want to hurt people).
Old pc has a reference design HIS Turbo 6950. she runs @ 910MHz all day long without a fuss(oh yeah, my noise and temp comments are inclusive of +volting and OCing).
