There are also two silent versions of the fan that are somewhat mroe reasonable- I like my 38mm panaflos
NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Ultra Kaze 120MM High Static Pressure Silent Fan 38MM 2000RPM 87.6CFM 32.9DBA - DFS123812-2000 In Canada.

I am also getting 4 of those yes from here for one of the rads. I figered I already had 4 ultras so whay not use them up. With a little sound deadening material in the case maybe the noise won't be as bad?

I don't know of any PC "sound absorption" that absorbs a broad enough spectrum to clean up noisy fans - I dunno, fans don't bug me personally so I'd just not worry about it lol.

This is just in the making it isn't built yet. As I get parts for it I get them like today when the doorbell just rang. The UPS guy finally caught me. I was waiting since Friday for it to!
