the fans are probably the primary reason why it's so loud.

Get a silent cpu fan, like the Zalman Ultra Quiet. Then get a NV silencer for your video card http://www.arctic-cooling.com/. Then stop by NewEgg.com and get two new 80mm fans that have a decibil rating under 20.

My system was loud too and i had the same prob so this is what i did (its kinda dangrous)

Just make one fan stop to see if its that fan, if the fan you just stopped makes your system quiet just leave it running in there until you get a new quieter fan to replace it

I have 4 Vantec Stealth 80mm fans that are real quiet. and a Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12 that I love, the only noise comes from my power supply.
