I use the Antec 370BQE which is -by my standards- real quiet. But not 
absolutely quiet.  For the pundits, there's always the -hugely expensive- 
watercooling solutions who are near (or even totally) silent.

For my part, if the case including CPU and PSU makes less noise than the 
harddisk, I judge it quiet enough. Especially if -in my case- my beamer / 
projector makes more noise than the whole mythbox.  Silence is only relative 
you know.  In the sahara desert, a watercooled system makes a HECK of a lot 
of noise.  Meanwhile, in the subway I can't even hear my MP3 walkman...
