Re: Best 6850/6870 (without third-party HSF)

I'd recommend the ASUS EAH6850 DirectCU/2DIS/1GD5/V2. And in case it turns out to be to loud, i'd carefully dismount the fan and plastics. Then i'd strap a 120 fan@5v on the cooler and check load temps.

Re: Which case for a fanless system?

Have you considered buying one of the Zotac boxes?

would be the top notch. I'll admit, it's not fanless, but pretty close and you could always buy the smaller box and add an usb optical drive.

The stock fans of the NZXT Source 210 elite at 12V are definitly louder than the gigabyte@furmark. In addition you could still use rivatuner et al. to turn down idle rpm.

Re: Silent(ish) PSU advice

i'll recomend the Lepa w series. Lepa sells rebranded Enermax products at a fair price.

be quiet! Pure Power CM 530W might also be worth a closer look, since it is modular and should be on the silent side of psu.
