An old friend from another life asked about a quiet computer... and the end result is a PC that's been custom built to be quiet in the tropical heat of rural Thailand. Its components include an Athlon64 X2-3800+, EVGA nVidia 6800GS-256, Samsung 200GB HDD, and six fans in a modified Antec P150 case; still, measured SPL is just 23 dBA@1m. Quiet is in the details of this high heat optimized PC.
