But it isn't about that. I like a nice quit and cool PC. Thats why I sold my 8800GTX and went with a slower 8800GT. That is why I am probably going to sell my X48 and go with a P45. That is why I am probably going to sell my Q6600 and go with a Q9450 / Q9300 or a E8400.
Hey in Scotland we need all the heat we can get. My cooling solution for my room is opening my window!

You could save yourself alot of hassle/time/money by setting up underclocked profiles in Rivatuner (I.e. Keep performance 3D at full speed, and lower the 2D clocks) and also slower fan speed profiles. Also try undervolting your CPU and/or enabling Cool'n'Quiet or Speedstep. You would still have some great performance in games, where noise from fans is far less of an issue due to ingame sounds.

Plus it already looks like you have made a watercooling loop so I'm assuming the radiators have 120mm fans on them which should be pretty silent already.

Now c'mon, we could sit here and argue about this all day, but you and I both know that Performance and a Super Quiet and Cool PC system do not go hand in hand easily, and there are no silver bullets, so let's not nit pick

Stupid-heads don't mention the load draw without a graphics card... This is misleading because I'm certain that the 200+ watt difference are at least partially due to the processor loading up.

Edit: i Cannot believe none of you caught that...
