Thermal heat dissapation
if you use your rig primarly for surfing / working, overall speed is less important than noise. One can find dozens of reviews of motherboard roundups, superpi & 3dmark contests, but not one giving you a clear idea about the noise you can expect.
~< 25W: easy to cool passivly. eg. zalman hp50, large cpu
< 50W: hard, but possible to cool passivly. eg zalman 80-hp, cheap heatsink with 13dBa papst NGL (unhearable)
< 70W: possible to cool with very silent aircooling. Decent heatsink + papst NGML (20dBa)
> 70W: nearly impossible to cool with silent aircooling
Max heat dissapation:
More will be added tomorow. Grafic card heat disspation is hard to find. Feel free to add something if you got technical papers to back it up.

NGML is NOT 20dba
These suckers are LOUD. Granted they move quite some air, but you'll have to put them @ 7V for them to be concidered quiet.
Put brain in gear BEFORE engaging mouth.

Wrong thread + NGML is not loud (rated @ 19 dba)
