the "quiet" HDDs are actually very nice, you don't hear the motor at all.  however, unless you suspend them, you will still hear the actuator during read/write (which bothers me more, since it's not a constant regular sound that can be ignored)

 

That's why I'm going all SSD. If I had a large enough case I could probably go all passive as well since everything short of the HD7950/70 and GTX680 have passive coolers available.

I used to be like that too. No more

 

My GPU crashes easily when custom clock and fan control are turned on. Not the computer, catalyst version, etc etc. Just the GPU. But the GPU runs so fricking cool that its auto fan control is enough. 20% idle at 30C and gaming at 40% with 50C.

 

I clean it often.

Auto fan is too loud for me. My custom fan profile is much quieter and only starts to ramp over 40% at 50C+

 

Also, EWWW. No dust filters in your case?
