Building a Quiet PC
ExtremeTech contributor Loyd Case has just published an article detailing how to build a quiet gaming PC. Having built a quiet gaming rig relatively recently, I must say that this article is fantastic. They used an Antec Sonata II, which I can personally attest to being an extremely quiet case out of the box (I rebuilt my wife's system using one). They used acoustic foam to further dampen the noise, and the results are very impressive. This is a great primer if you're looking to built a fast gaming system that doesn't pump out the sound pressure of your average datacenter.
