there is always water cooling !
but now you are talking megabucks.

this is really not a big deal.
the real question is how much money can you afford to throw at this =
and which is more important to you, your bank account or your sanity?

some of the choices available to you are, ear plugs, giant heatsink and =
no fan, medium heatsink and smaller than existing fan, keep the system =
as is but put the chassis in another room, water cooling, cryogenic =
systems, etc ..... ????
if this were mine, i would double the heatsink area and halve the fan =
speed. do the math very carefully here unless you like smoke.=20

Here's a ludicrously large heatsink for your cpu.=20

you'll need a small amount of airflow in the case, or at least a vent =
 the heatsink and one at the bottom to make use of natural convection. = also=20
has a wide assortment of low-noise parts.
