Sound is AFAICH (as far as I can hear) fine, I've ripped some (of my
own) CD's to MP3, listened to internet-radio etc.

Very low. I have a Cube next to it, and this wonderfull machine is my
baseline regarding noise. and this will definitely pass the test.The
fans from the powersupply are louder than the chip-fan. I bought a
Nexus low noise cabinet which is a bit louder than I wan't but still
silent enough.
