    How do you make a Dual Xeon  X5680 system quiet?

      I am planning to build a Dual Xeon X5680 workstation with all Intel Parts (except memory). From the posts I have seen the Intel CPU Fans and Case is extremely noisy.

       

      Since this is to be used as a workstation I really don't want it to be noisy. Any suggestions or am I barking up the wrong tree by going with Intel's Fans, Case, and Motherboard?

       

      The Parts that I will be using are:

      CPU                  - 2 x Xeon X5680

      Motherboard     - Intel S5520SC

      CPU Fans          - 2 x Intel BCSTS100C

      Case               - Intel SC5650WS

      Hard Drive          - Intel X25-M 160gb
