I noticed it's 130W, as compared with the 4770K Haswell which is 84W. Think I can silence it? Maybe I'd have to try to underclock it...

Dont worry about the CPU, the 3 firepro you planning on using will do more noise than anyother component, unless you go into water.

The firepros are passive.

So what? Do passive cards a) beam the generated heat to Alpha-Centauri or b) dissolve the heat into your case?

If it really isn't option a) that your cards do, there might be a connection between passive cards heating up your case and the fan speeds needed for ALL cooling fans?

You might want to start two new threads, one about passive cards and one about Alpha-Centauri? :mrgreen:

The multi-view series are very low wattage, though, so they don't generate the heat a 7970 does for example.

Nonetheless you do need some intake fans blowing on them all the time, at a very short distance: heat is like dust, it's always building up.

Moreover, those heatsinks are not an Accelero S1-class cooler, even if they deal with 15-20W: I've an Accelero S1 Plus on a FirePro V3900 (basically an HD6570), well seated, with AC premium pre-applied TIM, and without an intake fan that card would run up to 50°C at idle.

To get back in thread, you've to define "silence", and under which conditions you would obtain it.

At first glance you might need some monster cooler like a Phanteks 14, maybe with a third fan attached with cable ties, and you still get a load temp similar to your current one (if you mind some sort of quietness at any power level).

I'm thinking the Thermalright HR-22 may be enough to cool close the the Phanteks. We shall see.

I've decided not to go with a 4820k though, as it uses outdated chipsets since its a prior gen processor.
