It's like I said, once you play around with the fan profile and adjust it to the lowest possible setting, it's very hard to discern the fan noise/air movement from the ambient noise. At least, that is how it is like in my situation.

If this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130334) is your current card, then I would have to say the move from the single slot cooler to the dual-slot cooler on the GTX 570 would be a big step up. I had an EVGA 8800GT that has a similarly designed cooler, and it was easily the LOUDEST component in my case at idle and full load - and this was as a PhysX card in addition to my already loud HD5970! This is part of the reason why I can never go back to a single slot card (unless it is going to be watercooled) as I tend to notice a droning/whining sound from them, in general, that seems to gnaw away at me. Previous to that setup, I had a single slot HD4850 that showed similar noise characteristics and it did not last long at stock before I had to switch it out for a Thermalright aftermarket cooler.

I'm willing to bet that once you try it out, the difference will be immediately noticeable.
