I had one of these laying around. It’s a drop-in replacement for the stock fan and is nearly silent.

To stress test, I’ve set my MacchiatoBIN to run at 2GHz and have four instances of this cpuburn running

After 60 minutes the temperature hovers around 67C (up from 50C at idle) in a room that is 23C. Power consumption is 19W (including 4GB RAM, 120GB SATA SSD, and 1Gb ethernet). There’s been no thermal throttling.
