    I'd say about 8.5 then but it's just a gentle hum to me and every now and again I'll look under the table to make sure that it's still running.

    I've never bothered with them myself as I've never felt the need.

    I sleep in the same rooms as my pc. Ive got an old noisy 120mm input, medium noise 80mm exhaust, and a noisy cpu fan. While it does keep my case temp hovering at 26C, it makes such a noise when I turn it off my TV sounds too loud. But its not like a roar, just like wiuggo said, a hum
