Building a Silent Workstation

The purpose of this paper is to describe how to build a silent workstation. By silent, I mean inaudible in an office with a closed door, or in a suburban home. These are locations with fairly low background noise levels (40dBA - 45dBA). Lowering the noise level of a computer, especially a high-performance computer, to be inaudible under these conditions is a significant task. Keeping the component temperatures low enough to deliver a long life can be even more difficult.
