I have mine ceiling mounted, and as the manual mentions, the noise increases when set for ceiling mount. It goes into high-speed fan mode, just as when it detects high temperature in desktop mode.
I have done a quick & easy "solution" which I'll probably stick with: I took an old plexiglass printer stand, turned it upside down, drilled a few small holes in it, looped some nylon fishing line thru the holes, and hung it from the board on which my projector is mounted. It doesn't kill the sound by any means, but it acts as a sheild that cuts the noise by 40% or so. It's to the point where, once the movie starts, I almost never notice it. I like the fact that it allows for plenty of air flow, and I can take it down and put it up again very easily. It even looks kinda cool.
Maybe someday I'll do a proper hush box...
