Probably been requested before but having recently had major problems with an excessivley noisy new PC which has since been returned is there any way reveiws can include a decibel rating?
We have ratings for speed, 2d graphics, 3d graphics etc but nothing on noise. I realise this can be subjective but it should be easy to take a reading in both an normal office and SOHO environment.
Sitting in a SOHO that is about 4m x 3m with a PC droning on all day is worse than Chineese water torture.

Looking at the link it seems as though they consider 48 decibels as being a loud PC. Couldn't tell you what rating I would have got but this could be considered as being on border of acceptability and could be used as basis for future reviews.
