    I'm looking for a quiet, off the shelf case and CPU cooler that runs very quietly.

    The system that I have now is pretty generic and the noise is starting to drive me nuts.

    I've got an Athalon 800 --> going to upgrade to 1Ghz
    Asus A7V motherboard.
    Standard in the box stuff like DVD, CD, couple of 30 gig drives, etc.

    Is there anything off the shelf that I don't need to customize right away that would be fairly quiet.

    thanks,
    Greg

    Cool

    I doubt if your going to find something off the shelf whats going to meet your requirements.

    Unless you buy a High End case you don't know what your getting for a power supply and they can generate a lot of noise. You also don't know what your getting for case fans either.

    The best bet is to find a case you like, if the power supply is to noisey replace it with a quiet Enermax 330 watt power supply. Then replace any case fans with ones that are spected to be quiet.

    You can also go the QuietPC route and get a HSF combo that is built to be quiet (I'm waiting for one of these to come in so I can test it).
