    You don't even need the fans that high if they are really that bothersome. The card will only throttle at 105c. You have a long way to go from that. I'd try to stay between 85-92c at full load. Those cards are BUILT to run hot.

    Obviously if the fan noise is no bother to you, then who cares :P
  4. Yeah if you leave your fans on auto, shouldnt get much hotter then 80-90 in your case, and you won't even be able to hear it.

    If you make a custom fan profile you should be bale to balance heat/noise.
