    okay, I'm fed up with the noise that my PC makes, so I'm taking measures to silence it up.

    what I have :
    Motherboard : Asus M4A79XTD EVO
    Processor : AMD Pheno, II x4 965
    Graphics card : 8800 GT 512Mb
    Case : coolermaster CM 690 II advanced

    I've thought of going full watercooling, but the costs are areally a drawback, so I've come up with an air-cooling solution :

    CPU cooling : NH-D14
    GPU cooling : Zalman VF1000
    case cooling : 3x noctua NF-P14 FLX + 2 noctua NF-P12 PWM.

    I'm at a bit under 200 euros.

    I'm thinking of always letting the case cooling on a slow setting, so I'll never hear them and they will be enough to garantee a good airflow nonetheless.

    what are your experiences with trying to get a silent PC on air-cooling ?
    is what I'm getting totally overkill for what I need ?
