Everyone knows about Yate Loons. Cheap, but good fans if they are real Yates. There are fake ones floating around, the guaranteed way to get real ones is from petrastechshop.com because they go direct to Yate Loon.

You could start by some lower RPM fans:

For the CPU, get this. If it's still too loud, you could stick a Yate Loon on it from above:

dude, the one you didn't think would fit on your motherboard is a cooler for your video card, and the Xigmatek is an awesome cooler and though you really don't need it, it's a very good cooler for dirt cheap...

Just to close this open-ended post, the Vortexx Neo VGA cooler took the gpu down to a cool 39-41 degrees C on full load. Very pleased with that Highly recommended if you dont mind losing a slot below your PCI-e slot.

Yeah, I imagine those are making some noise, I'd get a fan controller if you don't want to replace them.

Replace them? Now why I do a silly thing like that? XP

Anyway, I'm thinking bout a cooling tower as opposed to the water cooling systems I was looking at before. They'd make a nice radiator, but I'm sure they would work fine on a tower as well.

Liquid cooling is totally unnecessary unless you are overclocking. Even then you can still get high clocks on air.

Well, that's what I'm going for, but I can't seem to get my comp to retain the settings that I put in once I modify them...

You might need to change the CMOS battery if it's not keeping it's settings.
