99% of us build our own rigs, so i doubt any of us own one. at first glance it looks like there are 3 80mm fans of unknown origin/quality/noise. -not exactly what a silent enthusiast wants to see. sure you could swap out the fans and the heatsink, quieting that rig, but why not just build one from scratch and achieve much better results for a whole lot le$$?
It might also be worth understanding your application. As it is a server, is noise really that important if you can instead able to put it out of hearing range?
