Hahahaha No kidding! It never ends.
I went to Tom's Hardware site to make sure all of this stuff worked well together, and I was initially going to get a liquid cooling system, but their reviewers reviewed a bunch of them, and this Air Cooling system fared better than the liquid ones, and they said it was more quiet than the liquid cooling ones, as well.
I'm not really worried about noise, I'm probably going to put the PC in a closet with sliding doors. I intend to run the cables under the sliding door, and put a box fan in there as well. Then I'll have the 12'x12' bedroom with a pair of keyboards, an electric drumkit, and the keyboard, mouse, control surface, monitor, etc on a desk by the keyboard controllers.
I'm going to mount studio foam to two pieces of plywood, and then mount those in the corner on a hinge like a door, and I'll sing into the corner where the mic will be.... sort of creating an isolated booth... or I may foam out the close and put the mic in there, since the main room is essentially all MIDI stuff.
Next up will be a decent pair of Active audio monitors. (I've got a set of passive Yorkville monitors, a pair of old auratones, and some things like that, but I want to get something a bit more current.... probably some M_Audio's.. I have a friend who has a set of them and his mixes sound great all over the place, and he said part of it is those speakers.
