Have you put any thought into anything that'll keep this thing quiet? Stock fans are NOISY.

thanks for the help, after reviewing this argument I am going to stick with a Antec SmartPower 500watt and upgrade when I want to in the future. I am in the middle about my thoughts on a powersupply, I actually sorta agree with both of ya on the subject.

In response to Timaphilips I am getting a liquid cooled system, I prefer it to standard cooling.

I got my rig in my sig fully up and running with no overheating and enough power easily, granted its a dual 12v rail so it gives some extra juice for the grinder =)
