Well I am hoping it will be, I will be switching out the stock cooler on the CPU for a Noucta one which I know will be almost silent, then bought a few 80mm fans of theirs to keep air flow good try and keep and noise at a minimum. I should have the parts by next week, and then it will just be getting the time to build it since i work a lot (reason for getting an HTPC as the Shaw one doesnt have enough capacity).

The Intel machine I built is water cooled so it is almost silent which is good, since everything is sitting in my living room (small apartment).
