I would say if you want to pay the premium go with the fractal design case, it is a great case. For saving alittle cash you could get the H2 classic silent from NZXT.

Well... does he absolutely need a 990x? Unless he already has it, it would be better to get something that doesn't expel so much heat.

A fanless PSU, HDD caddy's to dampen motor whine and vibration, and very low speed fans will be your friend. 800rpm ~ fans don't make that much noise.

And if he absolutely must have that setup, store it somewhere it can get airflow without bring sound into that room.

is there any for 1366?

i'll bet it would be a chunk of metal but it doesnt reealy matter aslong as the computer is quiet ass possible


and that PSU seems promissing

how can i be sure that it will hold that system safely?
If you just want to get a system that's as quiet as possible (not 0dB), just get a regular PSU, IMO fanless PSUs aren't worth it noice wise.

As for the CPU, just get a Venomous X, Silver Arrow or Noctua NH-D14 and drop the fans, It should keep your CPU cool. Or slap some inaudiable 300RPM fans on it if you want to be safe (remeber you can also *cough* underclock and/or undervolt that CPU *cough* ).

In any case, I don't think any of this will be more audiable than the noice of that Hitachi HDD. More important is the case that you're going to use. Don't get cheap plasticky or "gamer" cases. If you truly want a classy and inaudiable case you should look at one of those Lian Li cases.

Depending on the space you need, these are good "soundproof" cases:

http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...ndex=62&g=spec

http://lian-li.com/v2/tw/flashpage/a70f&a71f/a71f/

This is a nice small case with ATX support!

http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...25&ss_index=62

It's not really that you have to get a Lian Li case, but compared to all the cases that I've owned they've got the best build quality. Build quality of the case is far more important when trying to get an inaudiable computer.

I think you'd have to replace your roof with a 30foot high heat sync and then attach it to your PC! (i'd love to see that)

and that p183 is also a choice

what you think will be the best?
and i know for a fact i wont use most of the fans if i'll even use one
so that's needed to be taken under consideration

Don't put the PC where he can hear it... /thread. If he is willing to go to that great of a length, then spend the money on a nice case and sound proof it as best you can with low RPM fans, anti vibration mounts for all moving parts, and get low wattage components. The fact is performance=db. You can easily make a very silent PC, even make it so you can turn fans off. However you do not want to make passive cooling your only option for anything you want to be doing processing on.

Well its hard to say, if you want no fans, then the Lanboy. If you want to use a closed case they youll need low RPM fans, I would personally get a Fractal Design, they have high quality dampening material and perform slightly better (cooling/noise wise) than the H2/Silenco.

I acctually attempted to do this with my H2go build but because of the expense of what the build was going to cost I had to scratch some of the plans. There are positive things about using foam in your noise cancelling build. As mentioned before it will reduce noise but the biggest draw back is that there will be a nice build up of heat with in your case. Because of this you will need some pretty descent exhaust fans. Even with the foam,W/C all your parts you will still be pretty short from your 0 DB goal. But the foam does do wonders in wire management
