Could you please tell me if my "ready made" you mean a known branded PC (HP, Dell etc?)

Yes, it is a Lenovo IdeaCentre H420. I will try the full load test shortly.
So, under full load (both cores, I did multithreaded WinRar, it gave 1.2MB/s in the benchmark), I could not hear any increase in noise.
I a completely silent room, you can hear the fan a bit, but the HDD is louder when it reads/writes
If you have any bit of background noise (TV, radio, people talking in next room, street behind window), you will probably hear nothing.
