You should get a fanless PSU (thermaltake) and the reserator fanless
water cooling set. It has blocks for the CPU, GPU and chipset. Then,
the only thing that makes noise is the HD. The next step would be
running totally in memory from the network;).

It is a very good way to go, in my opinion, though it should have been
named GLFS. It's not like it's a kernel tutorial;). Also check out DIY
(GNU)/Linux. These sources of information are good guidelines for
making your own distro with extreme control and insight into every
part of the system.

Be aware that this is proprietary software.
