Geesh.. 2x 480's would be very loud and hot I bet. Now I could run that cooler on the lower card but again I would still have one loud 480..
Look up reviews on the cooler in my sig on the 480. $60 well spent. temps never breach 64c while gaming with fans at 50%.
Fans at 85% are still silent and temps never go above 55c. So worth it.
