The rigs I build for my customers are very quiet - the most critical item is the location of the pump. Lastly I've been using Antec P180 cases and found that the pump located between the PSU and the lower HD chamber has the lowest dB of all.

Add 1 intake fan for the HDDs, 1 on top for the blow hole and 2 of the rad. No more noise.

I really do like the Swiftech kit that Patriote mentionned - very efficient start-up kit, and very easy to upgrade since the pump and rad combo can handle a whole lot more.

Heck, it's the same components as the Ultra+ kit... once you're ready, add GPU and NB blocks to your loop and voila.

Here's one of the rigs I've build - http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/9866-post11.html

Yeah- I don't have a fan speed controller and I don't really feel the need as the noise isn't enough to bother me and I like the 24/7 cooling- I have three 38mm thick panaflos blowing 70cf/m along with 3X120mm case fans and an 80mm side fan-- but the noisiest component of all is the Coolit memory cooler with it's little 50mm fan (whiny little bastard)

Quiet? quiet? Everything is quiet since my Tornado days now those suckers were loud, cooled like a SOB though.
Fan controllers were a must. I think they pulled 119cfm but my memory is a little fuzzy. Been looking @ case fans today, ;-/

I've never used a fan controller - I always set-up my fan speeds through the BIOS. I like clean cases and always found that fan controllers were too much for me.

If you want a real quiet fan, try this one: 60mm Delta. Delta 60x10mm Low Speed 13 CFM, 24dBA. I've bought a few times from Sidewinder Computers - great service and shipping.
