D5100 - disappointed in noise level

OK I'm probably spoilt with the ultra clean files from the D3S/D800 but I was disappointed to see obvious noise at iso 640 (and also below that). I bought this camera as a Nikon refurb but it's going back. I much prefer the files from my trusty D70 - also no good at over iso 400 but at least it doesn't pretend to be better than it is.
