I have only one fan, from the silent power, but the real noise comes from 
two harddisks that both spin at 7200rpm. If I shut one of them down with 
hdparm, the noise goes away. It's the resonance.

Passive cpu cooler, passive GPU, silent power, silent hard disks when used 
one at a time. I should start using external hdd's, there should be no 
need to run two disks at a time anyway.

I've been thinking of running linux from usb-stick. So I could shut off 
both hd's. That would make my system _really_ silent. The usb disks aren't 
that fast though, but I should give a try someday.
