Silent Gaming PC. OPINIONS??

Hi all

Building a new silent PC soon and want it to be as quiet as possible. I am looking at

CPU: prob i7 1366 or 1155 pin OC'ed medium
GPU: GTX 580 OC'ed medium
HDD: 2x SSD in Raid and a few HDD's

Im not to bothered about the other components ATM. The main thing is the best way to reduce the majority of noise from these components.
Price around $3000 AUD. Also this PC will be running in a room @ 30-40 Celsius (86-104 Fahrenheit)

What would you choose from this selection ( or something else)

Case: Lian LI bc-b25s
Fractal Design R3
??

Cooling:CoolIT Vantage ALC for CPU
CoolIT Omni ALC for GPU
Thinking closed Water Cooled is going to be quietest and easy.
I will be adding extra sound dampening foam and anti vibration.

Your opinion is appreciated thanks.

    Yes it is. He said he wants water cooling and acoustic foam.
  6. The simplest way to make a pc quiet ........
    put it in another room

    In your case with all that over clocking
    put it in another room as far away as possible

    ie about 5-7 meters
    which is about as far as a DVI-d signal can travel before starting to degrade
