Thinking about getting a Mac Pro 8-core. How loud are they? Does the noise get in the way of mixing?

Thanks,

Never noticed mine once and its 12" from my ear and 24" from the speakers.

Super silent.

I can hear a bit of fan noise if I get down close to the computer. Fortunately, I don't usually mix down there. heh. The quietest computer I've owned.

I have the early 2008 8 core with the Nvidia card - it's only loud for a couple of seconds when booting up.

Best computer I've ever used.

I have 8core 2008 with ATI with active cooler. After one year it started to be noisy. I changed it for passive one and now everything is cool and quiet

yup, TONS quieter than the old G5 I had. That thing sounded like a 747 was getting ready to take off after a few plug ins were inserted.

It sits under my console and doesn't bother me in the least.

Extremely quiet. Only time I hear it is when I'm burning something.
