Since the new models are in a larger case and designed to be "front and center" at the operating position, can someone at FRS comment on how the noise level of the cooling fans compares to the 6300/6500 models? Less, more, or about the same, especially during receive? I've tried both a 6300 and 6500. Loved the radios, but could not tolerate the constant whine of the fans. Thanks.....

The air flow dynamics for cooling the radios have changed in the 6400/6600. It should be quieter since we are using a larger fan.
