Quiet build - Looking for suggestions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking to build a very quiet, preferably inaudible, water cooled system. I'll be using a die/bare mounted, delidded 4670k @4.5-5ghz and a single gtx 780 (most likely lightning) also oc'd. Tentatively I'm planning on just sticking a large 180.3 rad in the bottom of a ft02 and hoping the 180mm fans can cool enough without having to be turned up too high. But I'd really like the system silent if possible and i suspect that 3 ap182s, even at lowest rpm, would still be audible. So alternatively I was also considering using a very large external rad like phobya's supernova 1260 with like 5+ 120mm fans at low rpm. I've never done a water cooled system before, so any input on what to expect would be appreciated.

Here's my tentative to buy list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1mhd7

You might consider an Alphacool UT 360, they are great RADs. You will also have greater flexibility with 120 fans over the 140's.
If you use a large external RAD you can get things much quieter. In some cases you won't even have to run your fans...passive cooling.
