After mangling the heck out of a zalman northbridge heatsink, I managed to get it and my two new xfx 7950 GTs in SLI set up. I think I have the quietest computer I've ever heard in person. My secondary monitor (my CRT) makes more noise than my computer at idle...
oh, and I can play all my games at 1920x1200 with antialiasing and filtering and all sortsa other silly overkill stuff with nice framerates ^-^
I'd gotten tired of having to turn my PC off every night due to noise... it's so nice to have my media center quiet enough to have on all the time. Thanks again to all those who gave input!

That's a very impressive setup for being as quiet as you say.....either that or you have a very noisy CRT. :lol:

The power button on my rigs makes all my computers as quiet as any that have ever been built.
