BuildSilentPC wants to help you do just that: build a silent (or at least low-noise) PC.

I may have to do this when I upgrade my video box in the living room.

Sitting there, enjoying your sweet new PC, you can't help but notice how incredibly LOUD this PC is. The video card is whirring away, trying to keep cool. The CPU is pushed to its limits, and requires pretty hefty cooling. The hard drive is fast, but spinning at 7200 RPM full time, it does nothing but add to the overall noise. Of course there are the several case fans you have going to keep everything cool, not to mention the power supply, which may have 2 or 3 fans itself!
