    Board?
    PSU?

    Tried reducing the fan speed down? At 1600-2000rpm the stock HSF are silent.

    Yep, the main noise culprits are usually the graphics card, psu and cpu.. maybe the hdd.

    List what you've got and you might be able to fit 3rd party coolers etc to them :)

    Well i just bought the Antec P180 Advanced Super Midi Tower Case. And the thing is very good at keeping things quiet, so the last 2 things that cause me grief are the gfx card and the cpu and ive made seperate threads about them. Just ordering the ninja now :)
