Just wanted to report this very easy fix to my gtx460 to make it less noisy

I removed the 80mm fan and replaced it with a 120 fan at 5v. The card performs incredibly well, I registered 26C in idle and 38C under stress (21 ambient). It was 33C-45C with the stock fan and noise definitely reduced by a good amount.

Note that I also changed the thermal paste on the gpu.

the board is a msi cyclone gtx 460 but I bet can be applied to any GPU.
