How quiet is quiet?
Im buying a new system
Here are the components im looking at
Corsair HX 850 W 80+
i7 950 3,06 ghz
2x gtx 460 1 gb sli
Corsair 8gb (4x2048) 1600MHz xms3
If i decide to run this system on aircooling, ill probably buy a Noctua NH-D14 cooler for the cpu, go with the cyclone versions of the 460s, as well as replacing the cases stockfans with four noctua nf-s12b and either run speedfan or put money on a fan controller.
I am looking for a powerful, yet silent build (or close to). I think I can control most of the components with fans, but the gpus apparently sound like a beast similar to a gtx 480 during load.
Is this right? Can anything be done?
