Rich B@stard, anyways you could go water-cool, if money isn't a concern, then you could get HDD water-blocks which cools really nicely. And watercool would enable you to extremely overclock the CPU and the Vid card. But the memory's probably going to hold you back in syncronized overclock, if you're into that kind of thing.

your hdd can be cooled with a quiet fan - at least one of the 7 on your case ought to be blowing on the hdd. btw, you tryina overclock?

You can't keep it cool enough to reach high FSB unless you got Prometia.
