Like Tom's Hardware but more focusd on how to do it quietly. Great 
reviews about fans and water-cooling, discussions about air-flow in 
cases etc. etc. Even building your own wooden case to 
dampen/channel/restrict sound...
If your wife doesn't want a tower server case in the TV room, how about 
an TV stand which happens to contain a server??? Will that be in oak or 

I'll see your $.02 and raise you $.02.....
