Probably easier to get the largest fan you can fit into your case and
run it at low speed.  Most modern hardware/drivers support throttling of
power hungry components so there might not be a lot of heat production
at idle.

The old Myth box (Antec NSK1380/AMD x2-3600/M2N-VM) has a 120mm fan on
the power supply and a fan on the CPU. I can't hear it from its location
under the TV.

The Acer Revo has a fan, but it is imperceptible.  The Wii beside it is
what makes all the noise.
