Default Are the new 55nm GTX260's Quiet?

Compared to an EVGA 8800GTS 512 card, how does the default fan profile sound? I've only found one review so far on these new cards so I'm looking for more opinions before I buy. I've been through a couple of HD4870's now and they were all too loud for my taste.

1. How quiet are the new cards?

2. Is there any real difference (noise-wise) between the stock version and "SC" versions?
