I own V100, V120 and V210's

Obviously the v210 is the loudest by far.

However the V120 is perhaps 50% louder than the V100, due to the 15K RPM SCSI drive in the unit. It is L-o-u-d.

The V100 is a very quiet machine, and perhaps only 10-20% slower than the V120 in practice - if it is noticeable at all!

Thanks, finally got my V100 delivered yesterday. It really isn't that loud for a 1U, still gonna have to work out some replacement fan setup for extended use (the master bedroom is just 20ft down the hall from the office where my servers are).

Stock CPU fan on my V100 was very rickety and noisy, lubrication didn't give much sense. So i did the same mod (note the comment there, too): http://translate.google.com/translate?j ... auto&tl=en . Since then, it's quite as hell :)
Since i got board only, i never used additional fans, i run it 24/7 on open air: I/O chips, networks chips, IDE controller e.t.c. are no more than calid, but never hot, no problems at all. If you have a chassis, you may need just passive heatsinks, to be sure. With GX700/GX710 Zerotherm cooler package you will give bulk of small heatsinks included (as bonus), affordable for covering V100's chips.
More info at my setup: viewtopic.php?p=7342908#p7342908
