do they get loud, I installed mine and they were loud as hell. when i run just one card it's much quieter, i think i will exchange them for 580 GTX (it's more on less same price) I got very nice FPS with SLI, but it's the noise that making me hate them.

how does 580 GTX MSI or other brand sound?

My GTX 570's run pretty much at similar temps. Second card 5c hotter. I have a couple of CM R4 fans keeping them cool. I have run 5850's, GTX 460's, GTX 470's, and 4850's in a similar settting!

Do not get a GTX 580 and expect it to be quite. When I was gaming, the noise from it was similar to my 470's. I ended up returning it to Newegg!

Most of the top cards are going to be noisy under load if they are not on water. You can underclock them and they will be more silent.

That's why I always thought it was better to get reference design when running SLI with no PCIE slots between (because they were designed with clearance and airflow considerations in mind).
I always run only reference cards in SLI/CFX. They are designed to vent properly out the back of the case, Tighten the rear screws as you pull the cards away from each other and you will have a clear air path between them. Focus a 60cfm fan pointed between them and all is well.
