Just for fun, I tried at the same time, Plex in 3 TVs, PS4 and two tablets, and processor was always under 40%, then no noise at all

Mine is louder than the pc; the fan is 6-9% (esxi, bare metal is 18-26%) but it has an annoying coil noise. I returned the first unit for this reason (celeron) and got one with a xeon in replacement (paid the difference) and it was ok for about 2 weeks, then it started. The only solution is to replace the system fan, very expensive from hp or look for another compatible one (50-75% cheaper)

This is the second and last product I will ever buy from hp; the only reason I bought the gen 8 was that the price/performance ratio was hard to beat with a custom build from components.
