Not bad, they're more of a roar than a whine, but they're certainly not
quiet. I'd put it on par with a Dell desktop under a heavy load.
They're also stupid fast, given when they were released. According to
Mathematica's benchmarks, the 1.3GHz Itanium2 is about as fast as the Xeon
5150. I suspect that's core-to-core, not package-to-package, since I
recall being pleasantly surprised comparing them, not floored.
