    I am on a quest to make my computer completely silent save for the sound of the HDD platters (I've got seagate barracuda 10,000 RMP SCSI ultra quite drives for that part). I've seen a couple of liquid cooled PC cases on the net that eliminate power supply and CPU fan noise. Most notably the Calm PC (http://www.calmpc.com/product1_e.html) I'd like to buy something like this, or at least something similar without having to send away to Korea for it. Does anyone know if there are vendors in toronto that deal in this kind of equipment?

    have you tried water cooling kits? they seem fairly common - most overclocking oriented sites have articles on homemade watercooling solutions. I think the ready-made liquid cooled systems are considerably more expensive

    Dry ice cooling would be the ultimate, but if would probably get so foogy that you wouldn't be able to see anything...

    Alex for some reason I remember Kife posting a link a while ago to a site where a couple of guys had rigged up a liquid nitrogen cooling system so they could overclock their PC's to some ungodly speed. Solved all the fog issues and was probably a lot cooler than dry ice.

    I'm willing to pay the cash to get a ready made liquid cooled system. I'm not up for the hassle of doing it myself and I'm not too interested in overclocking. It's a computer for the studio and the sound from my current case interferes with proper monitoring. I just want an absolutely quite studio and fanless seems to be the only way to do it.

    thx pr0n. I didn't see any prebuilt cases on the web site, but this looks like it might be just the store to get the pre-built solution I'm looking for. I'll tell 'em you sent me.
