how silent does it run?

with the zalman fanmate it runs silent, with the fan at 100% you can hear it. I'd say its inaudible while watching a movie from bed, and when the room is silent and its time to go to sleep its still inaudible, i have to put my ear to it sometimes to make sure the fan is still spinning.
