You could just overclock yourself...

True, DC2 is quiet though and I'm not much of an OCer. The only thing I will probably do is OC the CPU mildly, but only until the point I'm not raising the fan speeds too high under load. I want this box to stay pretty quiet, but I'm not going to invest in a water cooled setup. I don't have the time to tweak and fiddle too much with system.


Overclocking the GPU is super easy and with the DC2 you most likely won't hear the fans over the rest of your system anyways even when you turn them up. I'm not saying to get crazy and start changing voltages, but you may as well take the time to see how much further it can be pushed at stock voltage.
