The graphics card is fanless. Power supply is EXTREMELY quiet.
The one thing I might have changed is the cheapo case I got- it's been discontinued. The case is a bit cramped, but actually works quite well for what I have. You probably don't want this case if you're planning on having 2 graphics cards, but then again, you probably wouldn't be buying a micro-ATX board if you want to run 2 graphics cards. One of the front panel's plastic snap-on nubs came off when I installed the CD/DVD drive. But I will say this- the fan is quiet.
The Jabra bluetooth adapter identifies in OS X as built-in, so you can use the System Preferences pane for Bluetooth. No issues, other than it doesn't make the Apple bluetooth stuff work with wake/sleep. For a dongle that does, check out this topic- I think it's a Targus model: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index. ... 272&st=140
Apple keyboard and magic mouse- hands down the best keyboard and mouse I've ever used. Gestures on the mouse are as responsive as the iPhone/iPod touch. Once you get the feel of it, it's absolutely awesome. The keyboard is really good- again, takes some getting used to. But if the things you have your hands on while using your Hack are Apple products, it kind of completes the experience- don't know how else to describe it.
I'm also still using the stock Intel cooler. I may go for a cooler if I ever plan on overclocking this machine. I built it with tight budget in mind- altogether with discounts at the time about $500.

EDIT: I swapped the 9400 GT for an 8800 GT, which works with dual screens with GraphicsEnabler=Yes only. No need for NVenabler64.
