Default Re: GTX570 pretty loud?

Guys, just did some testing with my Sonata III but with side panel open and air blowing onto it using a bit fan. Temps are about 45C idle and up to 85-90 under load. This is with an OPEN case. I don't mind the higher temps, but my fan speed is idling around 42%, and when gaming this ramps up quickly to about 75%-85%, which is incredibly loud. The fan is sounding like an airblower in there! Even at a speed of 65% it's VERY loud.

Could it be I'm having a faulty card and/or cooler? This is a Gigabyte brand.
