It's all about framing. I had a pair of Dell R710s running for my home lab. If you've ever used one of those, you know they are NOT home lab material due to the noise. Then work gave me a 48 core Epyc server with 384Gb of RAM, and it's still noisy, but substantially quieter. Now my wife remarks how quiet the server rack is. The extra PC with my 1080TI + 1050Ti in it is so quiet, you still can't tell from sound whether it's on or off.
