I was thinkign on 3570k for overclock with passive NH D14, well it will work but W/o bcuz ivy bridge is the Intel processor that makes more heat I think that more than Nehalem due to the TIM used on under IHS instead of soldered IHS

NH D14 passive here: http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/silverstone_he01_review,10.html


Edit: Here passive NH D14 with i7 3770k

I had a Corsair A70 passively cooling my 2500K for a while with no fans in my case at all, the chip got very toasty. So just make sure you have some airflow in your case, it doesn't need to be much.

Even with the 120mm fan in the front at absolute minimum speed (300-400rpm) will be extremely beneficial and wontr increase the noise significantly.

Other than that the D14 performs very well without a fan, when there is low case airflow, so your best bet is to try different configurations for your self.

I don't think the node 304 allows the fan in the front position but I will check when I get it. The fans that come with the cooler are still audible on lowest though. I have ordered a NF f12 pwm so I hope that it is quiter at the absolute lowest rpm possible if I do choose to install it.

The node 304 is a small case and the 2 intake 92mm fans should be blowing directly against the noctua heatsink so I guess airflow will be fine. As long as the chip isn't hotter than 90 °C, isn't that fine. I thought it was a myth that hotter components didn't last as long.(within reason, so not hotter than 100°C)

You should have no problem. My CNPS10X Performa keeps my 3570k stock at a reasonable 40*C with 1 intake fan in the case.

This, the OP can also try it when he gets it. You won't get anything better for the pricerange and you wont get anything better for a silent HS/F.
You can always add the front/middle fan when you get it if temps are too bad. I reckon it should do alright though without it, you could use an adapter to make the fans run really slow so they'd be quieter then the HDD's and a steady 300-400RPM would make a nice silent bit of airflow.

I got no HDD's only one ssd. So my aim is for it to be inaudible in a silent room. But you guys are right, I will try passive and play around with a fan if temps are starting to look dangerous. From what temps should I start to get worried?

The 670's fan at 70%+should be louder than the fans on the D14... The GPU has quieted down from the previous versions, but it is still pretty loud at high uses
