Good decently quiet HSF for Lian-li v880 htpc?

S939 x2 3800+ being utilized... probably no overclocking at all or mild one if I see the need (doubt it). It doesn't have to be absolutely silent but need to be quieter than the stock HSF. Basically there will be some ambient noise coming from the projector while someone is watching enough to drown ...

Most likely you will need to suspend hdd. To be honest I love ATC-201 case. Once you swap out fans and lowers voltage, it's sturdier construction over lian-li case makes it much quieter than just about all lian-li case for similar airflow level. Acoustimats do help on this case.

IMHO, Peltier = expensive. Unless you want the extreme temperature, waterchilling = waste of time/money/effort. If you are looking for above freezing point temps, stick to direct die peltier setup.
