I'm afraid that with 5 drives, one of which is a Raptor...PCP&C Turbo 510 PSU.... this isn't going to be "quiet". I'd suggest a single Delta tri blade low speed fan for the rad & place the rad in front of the case at/on the intake for cooler air. And have the Delta set up on a shroud to pull air in ...

I don't know why I didn't post this before, but the biggest advantage of the Asetek HDD water coolers is that they have no aluminum in them. Both the Koolance & Innovatek HDD coolers are made of alum. a unneeded corrosion risk in a water loop.

While those already mentioned will all work you may also wish to check out the ones made by Asetek

A combination of a copper contact plate & plexi upper, a bit of bling & also the copper should aid temps. Yet as only the contact plate is copper it shouldn't weigh to much.

Thick heater cores work very well with fans that offer a high enough pressure rate, which no low noise fan does. You'll be better off with a smaller rad, which isn't so good on the water side, but will work far better with a low pressure/noise fan on the air side. It's all a balancing act. You may a...

I've a Antec midtower BQE3700 case with a planned water loop for both the CPU & GPU on the way. I can't guess how I'd get it into a mini case. My planned loop. Pump 50Z from Coo...

One thing I'd like to add. If you can, find a single pass heater core as they are much lower resistence to flow than a dual pass type. The core from a Chevy 69-72 pick-up With A/C is one such that is populer with many here in the US.

I've used sorbothane for years on my competitive shotguns. It makes a big differance when shooting a 200 target program....with a 12ga.

And it does also speed up follow up shots as part of what it does is steady the gun in recoil, preventing what is called recoil bounce.

A interesting approach man. I've wondered before if useing a thicker material for the window would help. A thicker window would add weight for damping vibrations in the panel as well as offering more resistence to sound transmission.
