I like all the Fan info,, I had the same thoughts exactly,, and you are right on the noise issue,, this is definitely not a fan you want in your room!
In a server, I have not tried an amd chip, i would like to,, but the problem that I would fear is that there are developers out there whom are still writing software architecture based on INTEL,, that could cause problems with the server and a root of endless unforseeable errors,,
correct me if i am wrong here, but i have had the same debate for years with AMD vs INTEL,, i like the AMD , but fear the monopoly of INTEL,,
just a thought,,
