Default Which GTX570 is most silent?

I currently have a Gigabyte GTX570 with a reference design, but find the fan to become pretty annoying at about 65% speed (which it reaches pretty fast, not the best airflow in current case). I'm thinking about getting a different one like the Gainward Phantom or the MSI Twin Frozr II.

Any suggestions which one is the most silent? I'm also going to upgrade my case to a Fractal Design R3 with a 140mm side fan to cool the card.

I have this, and I can say its the quietest card I've ever owned, even when playing graphics heavy games. Never seen the fans above 44%, they are quieter than my case fans even at that speed, and my case fans are all silent 1200 rpm 120mm fans.
