How many Others out there use a Liquid cooling system for there comps, cause they over heat when running LightWave?

If I had a choice I would have chosen a liquid cooled one, I regret not having chosen it. The noise my computer makes is unbearable. (dual xeon 3.0 ghz)

I complained to the company about the noise and asked if they could replace the fans with a quiter solution, their reply : NO
:(

No liquid here.

The noise from my comp bounces off the wall behind my desk and back to me. So... I took a sleeping bag, folded in half, and placed it half on top of the box, draped over one side and over the back. But in the back I leave a good 12" clear for the air to get out. So the sound is being dampened by the sleeping bag and cuts the sound by at least 50%. :)

My box doesnt overheat. If the room gets even just a little too warm I turn on the air conditioning :)

I am amazed at my Dell XPS 400. No liquid just fan and heat sink. Dual Core Pentium D and my computer is about as silent as it gets, and it doesnt over heat.

Just the Roar of the Fans here. I can't sleep soundly unless I can hear my babies humming to themselves in the back room.
