Woaah ! Guys ..Calm ..
It was me who brought up noise..I like quiet machines and Intel.. IME needs more "cold" ( to do the same job )..and if air cooled is thus noisier ..my Intel CPUs came with cones / ducts built in/on with their supplied cooling fans ..and they are noise amplifiers..
And given the OPs budget restrictions ( he like me is not in the USA ..and probably any hardware costs us waaay more than either of you pay..he may have to pay even more than I do ? and have less choice available ?..remember customs and taxes on taxes ..he is in the EU too ) ..whether pre-built or build it yourself, I'll bet that without "importing" he'll have less choices and more costs than you do..
Just like with DSLRs ..
