Hello, how loud are the new machines in general? How much louder do they get under load? How much of the noise is contributed by the graphics card? How do they compare to the 2008 MacPro or to the PowerMac G5? Many questions, I know. I have a G5 Quad 2.5 at the moment, at it is rather loud, especially under load. Back then, I bought it with a better graphics card (7800) and exchanged the graphics card fan with a quieter fan from Zalman. This eliminated the annoying, high-pitched sound, but the complete machine is still very audible. A friend of mine has a 2008 MacPro, and compared to mine, it is a very quiet machine. So how do the new MacPros compare? If you answer to this thread, please state the processor frequency and the type of graphics card. Thank you very much in advance! Matthias.
