Well, you can start taking her out to Chinese buffets and the like ... :-)

Personally I think the number and noise of the fans is overkill and
from what I remember you could probably turn off some of them without
damaging anything.

However I would suggest looking into a printer enclosure or the like
that will muffle the fans.  Alternatively get a smaller rackmount unit
and mount the SS1000 inside that. I mean the kind with doors :-)

Oh yeah, is she cute and does she have a sister?  It is sort
obligatory to ask that question on this list...
