What is the advantage of this setup over the retail heatsink or a quiet Zalmann heatsink? (other than looking "cool")

It is perfectly silent and I love the look of it. Those are the reasons, I still think the Zalamann heatsink is too loud. Overclocking is pointless to me, I don't have time to be playing video games all day.
You will shit your pants when you find out I bought a fanless PSU.
I have 0 fans (yes, let me repeat myself for you...ZERO FANS) and I am running 31C idle.
Again, I will repeat that I am running ZERO fans and 31C idle.
Why oh why would I need to boost/noise up my system to get lower temps? Please explain to me why I would need lower temps than 31C?
Why would I overclock? What is in it for me? I used to back in the day but it is pointless. The very few games I do play I get perfect frame rates. I spend maybe 2 hours a month MAX on games so overclocking to me is silly. It was cool back in 1998 but not now (for me at least).
If I did OC I would still probably get good temps.

is the fans in your back grill under the psu just not hooked up (i think i can see the fan hubs but i might be wrong)?
and is the fan/blow hole in the top of you case just a hole with out a fan in it?
if you went totaly fanless, how does your system boot up, since most mb need atleast a fan connected to the cpu header to boot, are you using a PWG to trick the system?
