Drop the pricey cooler, locked CPU, no need

80+ Platinum is a little overkill, but no reason to get rid of it except for price

 

core components look good

Personally, I'd say get rid of the CPU Cooler (No overclocking), change the GPU for another brand, and personally, I've have Seagate Barracudas break on me, so I'm not 100% about Seagate but I'll accept that they are a good brand. But my heart is with Western Digital for HDDs and Samsung/Intel for SSDs

HDD and SSD are temporary we're waiting for a sale I should've specified it

it's not about the rating it's about the fanless operation ^^

whe're trying to do a silent build would you suggest something like the 212 evo for low noise opperation ?

Ah, i misunderstood.

 

You could get a Corsair H60 and replace the fans with really quiet ones from Noctua, would prolly be lower noise

the 390 is a really interesting idea we're looking to see if it's really worth it for what we're aiming for (like with is monitor it's not that worth it to go for the 390) and for the first build yes the cpu cooler will be changed but we're looking for very silent cooler so we need a little more research and no the psu will not be changed we like it because it's fanless ^^

My hyper 212 EVO can keep my FX 8350 below 50 even on 100% utilization (with an overclock), so could cool that CPU pretty easily and quietly I imagine.

pump will make noise still. we'll maybe go 212 Evo with Noctua fan and set it to low rpm

I have little experience with builds meant for low noise, so I do not know how to advise you.
