Ok so ive got a mate ive built a computer for, and he wants it to be very quiet

i.e. i have a NZXT Hush case, with all quite stuff, and it makes next to no noise, but its still too loud for him...

im going to water cool the CPU and GPU, and i need your guys help to select the correct bits

it needs to be a Rad with NO fans, and it has to sit on top of the Computer, i.e no taller than about a foot, maybe one and a half, i need all the pump/res inside the case, and it needs to cool a Q6600 and a 8600GT both at stock and needs to be literaly NO noise, or as close as you can get

so, can you guys help me out

Thanks

The PSU will end up being the loudest part of the computer, get a fan controller and turn down the fans when he needs it silent.

No noise is nearly impossible, extremely difficult, and expensive. Inaudible is pretty easy to do with watercooling.

PSU won't be that loud. Just get one known to be quiet and make sure not to use over 80% of capacity.

Get some Yate Loons and run then at 900-1000 RPMs... tell me if you can hear them from 2ft away. A 120.3 BI Pro or Thermochill is a must for this build.

Well i have the system built, its just a little too much, if i stop the fan on the Q6600 and the GPU with my hand ( only for a second ) he said that is enough, so i know a pump can be very quiet as its a Silent dampening case, all i need is a fanless Rad thats fits the spec in my first post, a good Pump/res and a Q6600 Block and a 8600GT block

Please

What fan did you stop?

Fanless rads suck bad. Even a little airflow makes a massive difference. From my testing with a quad core radiator (it's 11.5x2x9 which is HUGE).... my temps climbed over 50C fanless. I just run some fans at like 900RPM and my temps drop like 10C. If he can hear 900RPM Yate Loons from 5ft away... he is lying. I have great hearing and I couldn't tell in a silent room. My HDs are much much much louder.

Not all PCs have to be gaming rigs. It could be used for video/graphics editting or science modeling.

Exactly, no gaming, mostly just so he wont have to upgrade for ages, and he wants HD-DVD stuff, hence the 8600gt

AAAA but if it where for that it would be mucher cheaper to go with a 8500,as that is what the 8500 is made for.

or this:

but I would recommend Duckie's idea of low RPM Yate loons.

I have no experience with these, but they are supposed to be quiet to silent:

don't forget to swing by xoxide.com for some stuff for quiet PC's:

Sorry, if you read my first post, it hast to fit inside the footprint of the computer, it can be about a foot tall tho

sorry, but thanks for the links

So was the 8600. Price difference isn't much either and the 8600 is more powerful especially when overclocked.

HD-DVDs you would have been better off with a 2600XT (HDMI out, etc) but no stopping that now.

true, but he dont use hdmi, he uses DVI, the only reason i want with a 8600GT is, i dont know much about ATI and the nvidia card was just right, thats all

You will hit at least 60-70C if under full load after an hour. A stock CPU... with a 105-130w TDP plus a GPU with a TDP of 30-50w.

I have two res for sale. One is a 5.25" bay res. The other is a modded Swiftech res for inline setups.
