Is the cooler noisy, sure it is but the open test bench just makes it even more noisy. I don't think AMD could have got better air cooler on such powerful card and keep it 2 slots at the same time.
I don't think there is any problem with the heat at least not compared to other powerful set ups. The load temps are just about the same as GTX 570 SLI, GTX 580 SLI and much lower than GTX 480 and HD 4870x2.
If that genius reviewer wanted to cook something on the card he should have used at least GTX 480.
Here ONLY the OC HD 6990 is much more noisy than GTX 580 SLI. Both picture are from AnandTech
HD 6990 reviews
Based on the above I don't think the rumored GTX 590 is going to run cooler or more quiet provided it's going to be as powerful as the HD 6990 and and use just 2 slots.
