GTX 480 stock fans good enough?

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I've been thinking of building a new system with 2x 480s. My question is the stock fans of the 480 good enough to keep the temps of both cards at a stable temp? My case is a Haf X.

Thank you

I think they work good. Keep your case temps down or run with the side panel off will help a ton. I dont think they are even that loud compared to the ATi 5 series fans.
