Bah, 7 fans only? That's nothing! =) I got like 12 in mine and it's not even
as loud as 1 60mm delta fan! =) Anywawy take a look at Monster Hardware's review
on how to sound proof your computer.
The sound level is really hard to describe to someone who hasn't heard a
similar machine. I have read on other websites where other authors complain
that they can hear their computer across the room. Well, you can actually hear
mine outside the apartment with the door closed.
