I know that there are liquid cooling solutions, but no air coolers as of now.

There are at least two after market air coolers for the GTX 480/470, made by Zalman and Gelid. At this point, the Zalman 3000 would be the one I would choose, although it exhausts the air inside the box. It is the same cooler that is on the Zotac AMP! edition of the the GTX480. In the reviews I have seen the Zalman cooler keeps the card below 80c at load and costs about $60.

You can also get a Thermalright spitfire + 480 mounting kit.

Or a Prolimatech MK 13 will fit GTX 470

I was in the market a few weeks ago and ideally wanted a GTX480. However those temps concerned me until I read about the Zotac Amp edition. Apparetly about 72C under load. The price was £470.00 though so for just an extra £30.00 I decided on the XFX 5970 Black Edition which is faster and cooler. I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with it.

Ooops! forget the cooler bit I'm getting around 82C under load but for such a card I'm happy with that.

I got the Asus GTX480, and have been pleasantly surprised after reading about the heat and noise. While it does get up to 91c, it never goes higher, and the fan never goes above 75%, so it actually doesn't get that loud. I know that heat level is pretty high, but it doesn't affect me directly or the system very much, and the card just kills in all my games.

Excellent Matto17secs i'm glad you're happy with it. Killer card which I think will fair better than 5870 in DX11 hence why I bought the 5970, I reckon the 5970 might just edge the 580 in DX11 until the 485 comes out that is.
