Comment Re:servers can get loud (Score 1) 380

You get used to the noise (it just becomes background white noise) after a while. I've got a 48port gb switch that was annoying for a few days but now I don't even notice it anymore. Of course, if you add a few professional grade servers to that after a while it will become hard to hear yourself think but you can get used to quite a lot.

Also.. maybe not so much re-purposed consumer grade desktop machines but server class machines tend to get louder/quieter depending on load due to the fans accommodating for power usage and heat generation so a lower user server will generate less noise overall than a high use machine.

There will always be faulty cables (I've tossed many a patch cable that could have been fixed with a few minutes and a new rj45 connector) when dealing with digital cabling but you will never be able to convince me that that $80 monster HDMI cable is worth buying over the similar length (or longer) $10 cable from monoprice.com.

Statistics means never having to say you're certain.
