How to eliminate noise from my computer

I need to eliminate noise from my computer assembled with a 3.00Ghz prescott on an ABIT IG7. I think to substitute mi Intel boxed heatsink with a ZALMAN CNPS7700-Cu and completly remove bundled chipset fan (that is loud) by leaving only a passive heatsink: chipset is near the zalman and probably the airflow hit also the chipset.
By consider that I don't want overclock my system, you think that all work properly, there are some restrictions about spaces, cooling problem , etc...
Thanks in advance.

  1. Just make sure your motherboard is listed as being compatable with the 7700-Cu on the zalman site.

  2. zalman site report only ABIT IC7-Max in incompatibility list but no IC7, maybe because Max version has OTES system near CPU: http://www.ocprices.com/index.php?rev_id=190&action=reviews&cat_id=74.
    I'm not sure about passive heatsink on chipset that must be lower that 39mm heigth; is possible to leave only bundled heatsink that is low, with no fan ?

  3. Probally the chipset, but it is possible to turn off and eliminate noise.
