16db and below is really quiet, though I'd usually go for something with more air pushing. Great for those quiet HTPC builders.

robax91, You mean to say that you trust manufacturer's numbers on db? Case fans are NEVER as quiet as they are supposed to be.

I'd rather just invest in heatpipe coolers that can run components without a fan for 0 db silence. I wouldn't mind a heatpipe cooler for my mobo chipset and for my ddr memory, but neither are particularly needed to be honest.

Yeah, so your build would end looking like this to get proper cooling

Wow, you dug up that old Puget system from 2009, lol... good one. Most people won't be running 4 quad core server processors (in series, water cooling), 16 sticks of ram, etc inside a ATX case, with the goal of water cooling the processors with the emphasis being on quiet and not cold as possible.

Usually people comment on the product, not the users. You might need a new hobby if you commented just to talk down to someone. As for the DB, maybe Tom's will review them to see how quiet they are, but it's hard to find out when several parts of a PC makes noise. Even if they are 20-25DB that is still quieter than standard fans that are 25-30+ DB.
