Looking for a quiet cooler

Hi, I'm a noob trying to figure out how I can get a build as quiet as my work machine, an HP Z620. That machine has multiple fans and a heavy duty case, and is absolutely silent. Any suggestions on emulating that?

Thanks in advance!

You can buy a silent case, this are 2 examples but there are others

2- You can buy a fanless power supply or one like the corsair RM series which the fans work over 40% load

3- Noctua fans!!!

4- Low TDP cpu

what's your budget?

Thank you very much! I'd looked at the coolermaster and think I might go for that one. I'll check out the RM series and the Noctua fans as well. I'm looking to spend ~$1200. Thanks again!

one last thing, if going for noctua fans, get the ULN (ultra low noise)

The cooler master silencio uses 3 - 120mm fans

I would recommend you to try out Swiftech H220-X.
