Well, according to a fairly recent report on Tom's Hardware comparing 
barebones, an Asus Pundit ISN'T silent, no matter what CPU you put into it.
Sorry I don't have the URL handy, but I'm sure you can find it easily.
In the testfield of 16 or so barebones, the Pundit came in third-last when it 
came to noise levels.  Check the story, think, reconsider, whatever...
