I'm a bit wary of reviews that don't offer any objective figures. What is quiet to one person is objectionably loud to another. Even if not particularly noisey fans have varying soudn characteristics that make their emanations frequently annoying. I have yet to see fans that small that are anywhere near quiet when run at a speed that provides proper cooling.
Another problem I have with the design is that it now blows all that hot air downward onto the motherboard, raising its chipsets' temperatures. I'd like to see a review that looked objectively and measurably at these things before I'd go for it.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
