  1. Do you want to OC the GPUs?
  2. Get a good air flow in your computer case.
  3. Get a blower type GPU that exhausts air outside the case, not inside. I mean this kind of cooling setup on the GPU.
  4. If OCing you could consider water cooling on the CPU. You'll need to buy GPU water blocks specific to your model.

What are you trying to ask?

Graphics cards have cooling on them. The best kind are ones like the founders edition, (I think I own the AMD RX 480 equivalent to the cooling style) The card blows the air right out by itself mostly.

If you're worried about noise, I'd probably invest in MSi SeaHawk series. They have built in Corsair H55 water blocks already installed, so as long as you have enough fan slots on your case you should be fine.

I want to make the statement that the Founders Edition coolers are only better in small/tight builds, or in builds with multiple GPUs very close by. In 85% of setups, the non-blower styles are much better. And as always, liquid trumps the others.

Good to know, I read MSi Gaming X series is ideal for quiet GPU's but I wasn't so sure if the fan positioning would be ideal for multi-card setups, where the SeaHawks kick in I suppose.

MSI's Gaming X series offers the most effective quiet-cooling solution for sure. Even at full load, the huge dual fans are pretty quiet, and they can get shut off entirely below a pretty high temperature. For a single-GPU solution, they are one of the best choices. Of course the Strix offers great competition by virtue of having 3 fans, but the quietness of the Gaming X is unmatched.
