Re: GTX570 pretty loud?
Try gaming with the side of your case off. If your temperatures are considerably lower (which I'm guessing they will be) you'll know for sure the problem lies there.
I'd post pictures of my set up but it's under construction for probably at least a week. I'll see if I can get my Q9400 set up in the case and post some pics and screen shots of temps later today.
