First off, this is the system I want to cool:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (@Stock)
Abit Quad GT with PWM (all @Stock)
Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 2 GB CL5 (undervolted to 1.8V)
PowerColor Radeon X1950 Pro (@Stock)
--no other extension cards--
Western Digital WD5000AAKS (two of them)
Silentmaxx 500W Water Cooled PSU (currently I use a Be Quiet 430W which is too loud)
Other components in the system are two Sony SATA DVD Burners and a drive bay for additional hard disks which has a fan but is not used frequently so the noise it generates doesn't matter.
I planned to cool the PSU, CPU, GPU and GPU-Ram with a Zalman Reserator II. The only two fans in the system will be Noctua NF-S12-800 (definitely the most silent fan I know of) in front and back of the case to pull out Motherboard heat. I will use a Stacker, or high quality Lian Li or Silverstone case for the system.
The maximum load on my system is probably when I encode/decode DVDs and play while doing that. I get a few hours 100% CPU and high load on the graphics card when doing that and system power consumption is around 200-220 Watt with very high loads. Normal system power consumption is around 150 Watts.
Currently there's an Accelero 2 on the Power Color Radeon X1950 Pro which makes ugly noises, the Scythe Infinity with the Scythe Fan is running too loud even at 7V and the Be Quiet (although exchanged twice) has a very ugly "clicking" fan.
So is the Reserator II enough to cool the components I have? Preferably I would also like to watercool the two Western Digital drives with the system. If the Reserator II is not enough which components do you suggest to cool my CPU, GPU, GPU Ram, PSU and eventually HDDs.
Thanks for your suggestions in advance
