Know a bunch of folks that run these. The fans do make noise, only you can determine if its too much for you (bring an iPhone or something to use as a source and some cheap speakers, or see if you can audition it.
Personally I prefer Carvers NON PRO amps for my HT setup (M1.0t, AV-705x, etc), but its been recommended to get one of the PM models for a set of passive 18" subs I want to get eventually, and I know lots of folks that run em and dont notice the noise, but thats gonna depend on your ears, if the fan motors are not toast, etc.
Make sure to try and run it through its paces if you can though...
