How noisy is the stock Core 2 Duo HSF?
I realize Intel is shipping the Core 2 with the same cooler it offered with the Pentium D, but the Core 2 runs a lot cooler. Since the fan uses a 4 pin PWM connector and the speeds are controlled by QST based on the CPU temperature, should I expect relatively quiet performance from the stock Intel cooler? Can someone who has actually used the stock cooler on the Core 2 shed any light? I'm willing to forego overclocking for the sake of quietness, just as I use a fanless GPU for the same reason.
