I made several changes to my system, here is the current configuration:

-Antec Mini-P180 case - all fans removed except 200mm tri-cool
-Antec Mini-P180 drive cages removed
-Antec 200mm tri-cool modified to remove fan control switch, undervolted, and connected to CPU fan header (Speed controlled by Smart Fan)
-Rear vents covered for airflow (airflow optimized using smoke machine)

-Intel Xeon L3110 Dual Core (LGA775, 45W TDP, 3.0GHz/1333MHz FSB)
-Scythe Orochi SCORC-1000 Heatsink
-Zalman ZM-NB47J Chipset Cooler
-Asus P5QPL-VM EPU mini-ATX motherboard, March 2010 BIOS, Intel G41
-4GB Patriot DDR2 800
-Sapphire Vapor-X HD5750 video card, fan turned down to 20%
-Hauppage PCI-E Digital TV tuner / PVR card

-Seasonic M12-II modular PSU
-Dual Western Digital 750GB Green Hard Drives, installed in Luxurae Silencing Boxes, in Antec P180 lower thermal chamber
-Copper insulated SATAII cables

-DVDRW is an Samsung external unit, via USB 2.0

The computer is very quiet, all bearings are placed horizontally, and the system is more than capable of gaming and productivity tasks. It's running Win7 Ultimate Edition (64-bit).

Very nice build indeed. At idle/desktop use that thing should use barely any power as well, guessing somewhere around 50 W.. The stock GPU-cooler may seem like a curse word to some, but I have a couple of those HD5750 Vapor-X's around and they sure are quiet with the fan barely spinning.
