Can computer components operate in a vacuum (no air)?
I was thinking, if you built your own case somehow, wouldn't using a vacuum pump to remove the air from the sealed enclosure of your components be like the best noise reducer ever? Remember you don't constantly have to have the pump on, as once the air is removed it cant get back in, if your case is amazingly strong and well build.

in theory...but how are you going to move air around to cool your components and get fresh air into your case when its totally sealed and in a vacuumed area? if you take all the air out and keep new air from coming in you might as well take out all your fans

IMO best noise reducer is 2 Water cooled loops, one for cpu and one for gpu, and low rpm/mid cfm fans.

my aquarium's waterpump is more loud then my computer at the moment. i got single loop with a 120 dual rad and fans at 50%. =)
