What about your ambient temps? Do you get good air flow through your case?

I just got my GTX 570 yesterday. I picked up the PNY version. Under stock speeds, mine stays around 40C idle, 85 C under load (Crysis & 3DMark 11). Although the radiator heat keeps my apartment is a bit too warm though. When I crack my windows and cool my place down to something comfortable, I noticed my idle temps drop to 34C.

As for noise, i'd say it's pretty quiet. Much more quiet than my old 9800GTX that it replaced.
