Xbox 360 Slim noise test: Is it "whisper quiet?"

Can the new Slim console cut down on noise as well as mass?

The Xbox 360 doesn't half make a racket. Sometimes when we've been playing Call of Duty the din of the old console is so loud that we think enemy tanks are on the way.

So when Microsoft announced that its new and improved Xbox 360 Slim would be 'whisper quiet' we were overjoyed, and tossed our industrial ear-muffs to one side.
