How would we know what is the loudest, you have control over the speed of your fans.

I doubt it would be your hard drive, those are only loud on occasion...

just take the side off and listen to where the noise is coming from. Stock cooling is loud...8800 is loud...your 120mm fans for the rad are probabl yloud...

Just cause you have watercooling doesn't mean it'll be quiet if you are still using loud fans...

Get yourself some quiet case fans and stop by your local car stereo shop that is a Dynamat dealer. You can get 2 10in squares of Dynamat for $15-$20. Make sure to get Dynamat Extreme. aply to anything that is vibrating and cover the largest single sheet aluminum with a big piece. If you case has a side window you can double or tripple the thickness of the plexi and it will make a big diff.

i dont know what kinda feet is on the case but if there something plastic or metal and the case isnt sitting on carpet u can stick on some rubber pads that will help absorb some vibrations or special mats like http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-sound-dampening.html
