iMac 2017 27" 3.8 vs 4.2 Fan and GPU Temp

I am looking to purchase a iMac within the next few days.

I was wondering the following:

  • To those that have had/used both the 3.8 and 4.2 iMac 27" 2017 versions how the fan noise and GPU temp compare to one another?
  • Is the noise really that bad or subjective?
  • Is the fan noise worth the extra processing power?
  • Is the 3.5 a better route to go?
