I bought one last week  - I didn't know there was going to be a C2D 
upgrade so have the older model.

It is pretty much silent unless I am using the optical drive when I can 
notice the sound.

Amazing devices for a front end though - super fast disk - bluetooth - 
gig E - Wireless and even a remote control that works out of the box 
with linux for changing the volume.

Really happy with mine.
