No WC experience here, but I've built a silent PC.  I got a Fractal Design 
case, a Zalman CPU fan that at its low speed is absolutely silent, and a
fanless GPU card.

My CPU runs in the 40-50C range consistently and the GPU rarely goes above 
45C.  I've been really happy with it for years now.  I don't think WC would
have been any better.
