You have two options complete heatsink case which is out of your budget or good wire management, air cooling and acoustic dampening.

What case do you currently have?
What graphics card do you use?
do you have a cpu heatsink?
What is your motherboard?

Sadly most of the good silent fans don't have LEDS. you should of stated that as a factor when building your pc as items like the psu and harddrives can't be changed with that budget and they are often problem areas for system noise.

How am I meant to reccomend fans without knowing anything about the case that they are attaching to? The case might be rubbish and have awful cooling ability 9800gts aren't particularly hot running if you have efficient cooling and a good case airflow if they are the cheapest (most likely as you didn't build it and the guy is maximising profits) they will have the stock coolers which are noisy and probably the loudest thing in there the back fan may just be loose if its noticeably louder then anything else

Compared to the new ATi cards (4870's) they run cold.

Talking Re: My options for silient cooling

Hi all,

I have a well opinion for you. you can additional a fan for cooling, because the temparery in PC is very high.

there's no such thing as silent cooling... but for 100 bucks you can get a pretty good setup... the GPU fans are probably the loudest part of your rig (cuz stock sux!) then the CPU fan

so whack a Sunbeam CCF (Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks) on your CPU (cuz you're using stock, right?) and a couple of these (Newegg.com - ZALMAN VF900 - CU LED 2 Ball VGA Cooling Fan/Heatsink - VGA Cooling) on the GPUs

it comes to about $110 after rebates

You poor disillusioned man;
HFX fŁr HiFi und Home Entertainment
+ heatsinked psu
+ heatsinked gfx
+ Hdd ssd or 5400rpm drives in some silencers T-Balancer Webshop by mCubed
No noise as there are a minimal of moving parts *he shoots he scores and the crowd goes wild*

Neither of your solutions are overly quiet either. To the OP please tell me what the case is I still have no clue what size the fans are, what size the casing is and you can replace a psu fan but it may kill you if you don't do it correctly (correctly is to leave it unplugged for 3 days)

Two of these bad boys would be a good start btw; fans are controlled by the motherboard and actively change according to temps it also has mahoosive heatsink so even at 700rpm will be cooler then the stock fans. I believe its compatible with your card but haven't double checked.

You can go silent cooling, it just requires a very large radiator with watercooling
