Don't really see what's there to be improved
Custom watercooling cpu + gpu for even more quietness? But that would require another case I believe.
Get rid of HDD maybe, no more noise from that... But all SSD storage costs quite a lot.
Fancontroller? And/or other fans?

i realy have to agree with tom here. upgrading your cpu or gpu would be a waist of money imo.....you will gain only a little bit of performance for your money. if you like quiet, maybe upgrade your case to a quiet edition case like a fractal R4, corsair 550D, or something along those lines. also maybe a better, quieter cooler such as a H100i, or a NH-D14? i dunno lol....your system seems kinda solid! but i did build a system for my dad useing a fractal 3000, and i did find it a little loud with the stock fans. so if you like quiet i just recomend a case.

yeah I like the look of those cases , I thought the stock fans on the 3000 were noisy so swapped them out for noctuas as with the cooler fans . maybe I should just have a crack at overclocking what I've got , and see how my cooling copes , cheers guys :-)
