I am starting to build a new system and was looking into possibly using water to cool the CPU and GPU to keep the box as quiet as possible. My current system sounds like a jet and I want something much quieter.

The CPU will either be the core duo 6600 or 6700.
Haven't decided on the graphics card yet.

I have been researching water cooling options, but it seems there are just as many if not more fans involved to cool the water. So basically I'll just be replacing the fans on the CPU and GPU with fans to cool the water.

I want to OC the CPU as much as possible, and try OCing the GPU as well.
I want to use a mid or maybe a full size case.

So far I am pretty confused on what tower and water cooling system to use. The bigwater series from thermaltake looked pretty good.

Looking for some advice on what would be the best tower/cooling combo while keeping it as quiet as possible. I also don't want the radiator to be external.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

Wich dont need to be 40dB or very high pitched like the one in the gfx card one. Pick the most CFM you can get for under 25dBs for your radiators and youll be happy.

Go with swiftech or build you own. Stay away from the thermalcrap.
