I cant find a dual slot cooler for the 480. any suggestions?
Heat issues? Never heard of that. Thermi is freaking hot, by itself or with a twin, but it works nonetheless. It will sound like 747 on cruise speed if you SLI them close together (without at lest one slot spacing) but it wont be silent no matter what you do. It can stand the heat though. No issues at all, unless you're OCing the hell out of it... then you might get some down-throttle on load obviously.

But a 570gtx!? That's not a good idea, man. It's slower than, or similar to, a 480.
If you have money to spend and don't care to do a significant upgrade, get a 580. If you would like an increase in performance for a great price, get yourself a second hand 480gtx!
It will be hot, it will be loud but it will be damn fast!

As a 570 owner, keep the 480 and buy an AXP for it.
