I agree about the blower style. Unfortunately the card I bought didn't have that style available at the time.
To answer the noise question simply, not much. I have my PC on my desk next to the monitor and it makes noise sure, but not that loud.
I ended up buying a small metal vent plate and retrofitted it to the side cover. I cut out a hole for it using a Dremel and screwed it in. This let's the card vent out of the side and really helped alot. Check it out

Well IMO removing the top is a very questionable idea because your exposing the PC to a non-stop onslaught of dust and debris. With the side vent my intake fans are running fast enough even with the gpu idle to push air out of the case and keep dust from being sucked in.
To each their own, though

That’s a great idea! Where did u get that thing that you screwed on the side panel? That was the problem when I used the 2060 FE, temp increase. So I changed it to a blower style gpu. I upgraded the cpu cooler as well and added a high rpm fans. Cpu temp is around 60 max at full load and gpu max at 70. It’s really scary and punching holes on the case is my last option as unit is still under warranty.

Hey, everyone. I know this is not the place to post my question. But I have been looking for some answers, and I haven't found anything yet. I have a C530 with RX 570 but I want to upgrade it to RX 5700. The thing is that the PSU is only 435 W on mine. Do you guys think it would be fine without changing PSU to upgrade my GPU to a RX 5700?

So, I wouldn't need to change my PSU if I were to get a RTX 2060? Can I use the 8-pin that's not connected to the gpu now as rx 570 only required the 6-pin?
