    The Wii is designed with gamers and NON-GAMERS in mind. I don't think Nintendo would risk selling a noisy console to their main target audience. Expect it to be whisper quiet.

    The Wii however will be so quiet that it'll suck up sound like a blackhole!
    the NM is nanometers, it's refering to the size of the processor core. It actually has nothing to do with sound at all.
    ... but what do I know?...

    The Wii features a fan nearly identical to the one found in the GameCube, except for the fact that it can be throttled when the system is idle or in standby mode.

    So, expect the system to be whisper quiet.

    Why than is the PS3 processor smaller than the Wii's? Or is it that kid just making up stuff...

    Money spend on Wii:
    $50 Pre-ordered Wii console
    $10 Pre-ordered Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    $100 Xbox console trade in
    $339.95 extra paid off
    $499.95 Total I'VE PAID IT OFF!

    Size doesn't necesarily mean anything. The Wii processor could be more spread out, thus making a larger core.

    The size in nanometers refers to the size of board the cpu is printed on. All that means is that the PS3 is running on a smaller size cpu, and this doesnt effect speed or power at all. Currently, the chips running in most of the new computers are on the 90 NM chip, as far as I know. This is nothing to do with the topic at all really.

    On a Gametrailer(.com) i saw they said that "Wouldint it (Suck) if your mom came in in the middle of the night and unnplugged your Wii because of the fan being to loud?, And you were the middle of a WiiConnect24 download?. Im sure it would, So we designed the Wii's fan so quit that not even you can hear the Wii!"

    The smaller the cpu die manufactuing process(NM) the less heat the processor will give out and the less speed you can run the fan at because it has less heat to deal with so doesnt need to cool as much, and less speed on a fan = less noise,

    but since the ps3 chips will be more powerful than the wii's they will create more heat anyway and need good cooling so comparing 90nm(wii) to 65nm
    (ps3) in this case dont matter

    i have a computer with silent 6 fans and its a 90nm chip and overclocked so more powerful than the wii will be and i dont hear it over background noise,
    so only way wii will be noticible is if it has a really small fast spinning fan which i doubt

    the ps3 has 8 cpu's with 65NM thats why they are smaller than the wii.
