True, but I built the computer as a fairly silent gaming computer as a fun project, so taking a penalty on heat verse sound is fine since its got foamed side panels. I did to increase cooling performance leave the top vents open with an H105 Mounted as an intake for the processor (Nanoxia Deep Silence 1), and removed most of the hard drive cages blocking the fan. Overall I think I got it to around 20-25 DB during normal non gaming use with idle around 30-35 celsius for everything .
