It's been a doorstop for a number of years, but I hadn't parted with my first attempt at a quiet PC. Until now. So, farewell Sonata case, AMD T-Bird CPU, Abit (!) mobo with the funky southbridge that would only accept one SATA I HDD at a time, Arctic Cooling CPU cooler, aftermarket passive NB heatsink, Gigabyte's passive 6600GT, my first (HP) CD R/W drive and of course, the ubiquitous 3.5" floppy. It was an awesome step up from my prior sounds-like-being-at-the-airport PC.

What was your first "quiet" build?

IIRC my first SPCR inspired build likely should date back to 2006 or 2007 (although my firsts steps into "quiet computing" were made some years before, with a venerable Abit socket 370 system, with Intel 440BX chipset and Zalman cooling).

This 2006-or-2007 system was based upon a DFI (gone, sadly) 965 Dark motherboard, a Core 2 Duo E4500, the Antec Solo, a Scythe Ninja or Ninja Plus, XFX passive 7600GT, WDC & IBM HDDs, CD-RW and floppy (I've still three or four drives) and if memory serves me well, a 1440x900 NEC monitor.

It died relatively early (DFI boards were never reliable, I guess, not to mention the heavy overclock), and in that occurrence I bought some other parts, most notably the first Thermalright High Riser and the firsts Slipstreams: some of those parts are still in my hands, I re-bought some more than once (Antec Signature), some are still in service (maybe a couple of Slipstreams, the original High Riser with a Venomous BTK is on a Core i5 4590, the Antec Solo still host my personal "legacy" system, X48 based, the 7600GT is sitting unused in the original box, and so on...).
