My X4540 is by no means quiet, but neither it nor my two Dell R610s are
anywhere near as obtrusively noisy as the two V210s or the X2200M2 I
used to run before the R610s.  The R610s whine a little.  The X4540 is
loud when you're standing next to it, but pretty quiet from the other
side of a glass door considering the volume of air it's driving.  The
V210s and the X2200M2 *SCREAMED* - and they shut themselves down
automatically if the air temperature dropped below 5B0C.  The X4540
doesn't do that.

(The X2200M2 is still in the rack, it's just powered down...  Cory has
the V210s now.)
