Try to disable all powersaving possible and check out the bios and enable more and more options to till you find your problem. it has something to do with your motherboard.

Disable C1E in your bios. I heard on other forums that that may solve the problem.

What happens if your pc is directly connected to the wall?

Did you try to disable C1E in the bios? If not try that ;)

What PSU are you running?

For extreme silence, buy a Noctua NH-D14 cooler and keep it fanless or with one fan in the middle. For insulation, try to find some AcustiPack or Nexus foam. If possible, keep the others cmponents fanless to. Look HERE . With D14 and only 2 Noctua fans@5v(500RPM) is very silent. Mental! Can you kee...

You can cool that system easily by air. Water IS for enthousiast systems (with high TDP cpu's motherboards and gpu's) your system isnt that power hungry ;)

I have a P180 mini with a 600RPM Nexus. In my experience a real silent at 12v/1000RPM becomes a little louder when the door is opened (when my ear is at 30CM away from the fan [more than 30 cm you cant hear the difference]). At 600RPM noice difference is inaudible. Also, my temps went down for half ...

Holy fuck mate that looks well massive. Anyway, I still think it's pretty weird that a cooler like the Asus Silent Square Pro is not performing better. Well right now its at 42º idle, which is not bad I think, but its running at 70% Speedfan (1900RPM). Maybe I applied the thermal paste not correct...

A question regarding the suggestion to go with an AMD platform.

Is it something I should even consider if I plan on doing lots of work with After Effects and Premiere Pro work?
Yup 6 cores, and i can reccomend you a Nvidia card because it has Cuda cores.

I'd guess get a decent tower cooler with 120mm fans (Scythe Ninja/Mugen, CM Hyper 212 (with a more silent fan), Xigmatek HDT-S1283). I have a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 which performs really well on my Q6600 (at 600RPM Prime95 it is only 52 degrees). Also your 3870x2 can be replaced by a 4850 (the 3870x2 co...

Did you purchase your motherboard already? Because you can go for a Antec Fusion but then you'll need a Micro ATX motherboard. You have chosen an ATX board.

I think they dont differ a lot. Just size and that the mini is more cramped and it has a 200mm top fan which generates a ginormous underpressure.

If you can get it a Mcubed FanAMP is a good thing for you. Its like a amplifier for your fans to hook up more fans to a single fan header. Because the amp draws its power from the power supply is thing can run to 50w or 25 of power (dont knwo that exactly).

That cosmos is HUGE. But i didnt expect it is can be quiet. Because of the huge space. I thougt it would be harder to cool because there is much space between components.
