Is It Possible To Build An 0db High End Comupter? - Page 5

Here's another idea to throw into the mix: Phenom II (125w TDP)-based system in a Silverstone FT03 running completely fanless: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiJzo89eayg"]FT03 fanless[/ame]

If he's not doing any overclocking and may even be tempted to underclock slightly you should get away with having the silver arrow (or Noctua NH-d14) as a passive setup with no fans attached.

Also I would recommend underclocking as this would allow you to reduce the voltages needed which cause electric noise our ears don't always hear but sound equipment might pick up.

You could just have 1 low rpm fan to exhaust at the top or back of the case and that could do it if your using onboard graphics and not worried about cool temps but also shouldn't over heat.

Add a bit of sound dampning foaming should even make that single fan you have beyond noticeable.

I would recommend (as others have) that you get a 2500k that should do everything you need faster and cooler.
hmm yeah he will go for 2600K
and maybe even wait for the 3000series..

my main concern is psu

I REALY WANT IT

it supossed to hold lets say

2600K/3000 series (maybe a little oc
4X4 gb ram 1600Mhz or higer
z68 mobo
1 ssd
1 hdd
about 8-9 cathods
Pump/tank (also with a uv cathod) (with some120mm 8.5db 35CFM fans on the rad)
maybe a plasma ball (for show )rad
/580/570/560 GPU (only one, even 1 is overkill for the games we play)

I recently finished a build of my own. I have a Nova 1080 rad cooling a GTX 580 and an i7 950. With three 600 RPM fans, nothing gets over 50 degress, and that's with everything highly overclocked. Once I get my Cooler Master M700 PSU to power everything, it should be basically inaudible.

Something to consider.

You can build a monster WC loop, and have all the pumps and radiators/fans in another room. Just run the tubing through the wall and then you will be without any fans. Although I dont think that is necessary because a fan at 600-900 RPM is silent, and PWM function will keep you safe from overheating. Plus it would be inside the case that you could put in acoustic foam.

I say get some Akasa Apaches, an Akasa Flexa(PWM fan splitter with its own power supply so you dont overload MOBO fan header), a TH10 case labs case, and fill it with a couple low FPI radiators.

That's basically what I have now. A 9x120 rad on the door of a heavily sound-insulated ATCS 840, with three 600RPM fans. The whole thing hums at about the same level that certain wall chargers will whine when charging devices, and the hard drives make a bit of noise when seeking, but beyond that it's dead quiet.

I think at some point I'll move the whole cooling apparatus into another room, along with the mechanical drives, and have only the CD drive, power and reset buttons, and SSD boot drive in the same room as my keyboard and monitor.

My computer isn't 0db but it's pretty damn close. The loudest thing in there now is the hard drives.

That's because they are WD Caviar Black - the noisiest consumer HDDs on the market.

If your doing music production, your well off getting a mac. Mac are mainly used for those things. I used to produce music as well of spinning them in a club. If your asking me.. Windows pc isn't the best choice of it. It's not really made for audio media.


EDIT and as for sticking with a Windows base pc... And music production. As the guy was saying.. stick the pc in a closet and have a virtual screen of 2 monitors. Your going to need extra room for your mixers and synthisizers. Also a mid speaker to hear your high tunes... I can message you more details... I sold everything I had for music production. But I can give you advice on what you need.

Oil-submersion cooling is probably the only way to cool a high-end system with zero audible fan noise.

IIRC, there are lots of passively cooled PSU's--but I have yet to see a passively air-cooled 990x...

EDIT--I guess this was already mentioned, didn't realize the thread was a few pages long.
