The Mac Mini itself is virtually silent, the noisiest bit of the external
cases is one of the 160Gb drives with a knackered bearing (it's been
"whizzing" for years now). The Mac can power down the drives when
they're
not in use but I keep 'em spun up all the time. The cases themselves are
pretty quiet - just a couple of 80mm fans at the top and an "AT"
style PSU
in the bottom (so if you really wanted then you could use quieter fans but
I
don't find them intrusive).
