Alright, building a PC, not going with liquid cooling, but I am going to blow a lot of money top of the line fans/heatsinks. I did a lot of research on, and when it comes to fan/heatsink cooling, the following seem to be the absolute best, based on numbers and temperature drops. I'd be using Arctic Silver thermal paste as well on my CPU and GPU.

Arctic Cooling
Freezer XTREME Rev.2

Arctic Cooling
Accelero Twin Turbo Pro

Arctic Cooling
Arctic RC Pro + Turbo Module

The case I'm getting is also designed for optimum airflow and cooling.

But to the question.

Does anyone know any better than what I listed? The most important thing I need to say is, I DON'T CARE ABOUT NOISE. All these [bleep] fan companies make their product as quiet as possible and yell about it in their advertising. I can deal with a loud non-stop whir, if it means better cooling. I'll just turn my music up louder. It's not exactly easy to search for specifically loud fans, lol. I just want the best possible cooling, 100% regardless of noise. Without turning to liquid cooling or something.

I dunno about you but the hum of a computer fan helps me sleep, lol.

First of all if you gonna overclock your new pc you'll need a good cooling if you don't plan to overclock than stick with a stock cooler.

Look for delta's. Many of their higher end models move 240CFM, but they are around 65DBa loud, basically like having a blender running in your room whenever your computer is on. They are built for server applications. My preference would be getting one of these guys, quite and performs great. You can always toss on a new fan if you want to shave off a few more degrees, although I wouldn't expect that much of a drop.
