A very big question... How are the fans of the power supply? Loudy or no ? Or has the stock power supply, with loud fans, been exchanged by apple as warranty during the period it was sold for an other one wth more quiet fans?
The computer is reasonably quiet, no infamous "wind tunnel effect" known from earlier G4 PowerMacs. I'd say it's quieter than my LCS G5 (of course the G5 has got an actively cooled GPU, not a passive Radeon 9000 like this one). I'll take a look at the vendor of the PSU as soon as I'm back home but I believe that (as it's a last production batch unit) the problems have been solved in the manufacturing plant for these. I'll also perform some stress tests to check how loud it can get.
