My System Specs

Default

If you think your current setup is loud, the 1850 Scythe GT's aren't going to be much better at full RPM. You generally can't get silent operation out of 120mm fans unless they're running at lower than ~1000 rpm. Water cooling generally can't be considered silent either, (especially sealed kits) just very high performance and very quiet.

I would undervolt your current fans first, as they aren't that bad for quiet heatsink operation at low speeds. See if you can keep the temps under control at an acceptable noise level. I would also suggest looking for advice on a forum like SPCR, since they're actually silence oriented.
