Provided you have a silent pump and silent fans.

Depends on the components. For example, you can get away with having an Atom processor's heatsink without a fan, and an SSD. Of Course, the PSU will have a fan, though. The more obvious choice would be watercooling the computer, but those aren't completely silent.

Edit: Not totally silent, but close to it if you water cool a complete system and use this PSU:

Technicly no. There will always be some sound no matter what. To the human ear yes. If you have wcing on pretty much everything, you have silent fans, and you have an ssd.

Oooh, nice find on that PSU, never thought something like that would exist. I'm interested in seeing how the insides are being cooled.

Nor did I. I wouldn't completely trust it though. I can't find any reviews on it.
