I'm in a slightly lucky situation - the garage is on the ground floor of
the house, and has a common wall with the neighbours garage. I've got 7
machines running in there, the loudest one is an old old Sun v20z and
noone can hear it in our house or the neighbours place. Otoh, temp has
been fairly low since I put these in, as summer comes in I suspect it
wont be that quiet.
