    Well first of all you need to know that it is the fans that make noise, so make sure you get good branded fans like noctua or corsair. I have very good experience with corsair fans without any low-noise adapters.

    Also you have to maintain your build at least every 2 months to keep everything clean and to avoid fans getting noisy from dust.

    Just don't get generic fans.


    P.S. maintain your build.

    For gaming i5-4670 is just as good as 4770K. Price difference is not worth it.

    Samsung EVO uses TLC chips, I recommend MLC even when some say TLC is just fine. Durability is something that cannot be tested reliably and TLC is unrealiable compared to MLC.
