HT P4 and the new cooler

Once again and excellent article on THG, and I read with great interest the cover of the new P4 processor. I see that Intel delivers this CPU with a new type of fan, and my question is how noisy will this fan be?
Does anyone know? I am going to build a new computer soon but I don’t want to have a noisy computer. So if anyone have heard this bundled CPU cooler or have a link to some review that mention this I would be very glad.

Also this article mention that it’s a new design so that the Voltage Regulator receive cooling to, does this mean producte like Swiftech MCX4000B will not be compatible?

  1. Interesting question... from the picture the fan doesn't look to be much different from the last Intel retail Heatsink. I also don't imagine that Intel would make it that much louder as the point to me seemed that a change to heatsink design rather than increasing airflow ??

    Just speculation
