20 dBa is basically inaudible. Anything under 30 is fine. 20dBa is more inefficient than anything else.

You can watercool anything that your heart desires my friend. And if your looking for a quiet computer, put nothing smaller than 92mm fans, Preferably nothing but 120mm's.

you mean nothing smaller than 92's. 120's are the best bet.

If you can watercool a PC, you can watercool a server.

Really? I have only heard really good things about them. About the silenx fans I mean.

Yeah, the VF-900 looks VERY nice. The copper case is of mirror polish quality. It's literally a mirror. When I get mine, I'll post pics.

The Accelero isn't bad, but the plastic snap-on casing of the fan and heatsink makes it look cheap. It also blows the hot air into the motherboard, which is a bad thing, if you ask me.
