Quietest 15inch gaming laptop suggestions please

Hello all,

I need some advice please. I'm looking for a gaming laptop that is as quiet as possible. I really would like 15 inches if possible, but would reluctantly consider 17 inches if it is not possible to construct a quiet 15inch one. I don't really understand how the different chassis you have affect cooling and noise. I will be using it in the lounge with my wife watching TV.

My thinking on minimum specifications are:
CPU i7 6700k or 7700k (is one quieter than the other?)
Graphics :GTX 1060 (1070 would be a bonus if it doesn't significantly make a more noisy system)
1080p IPS screen, preferably G-Sync
16GB RAM (I am curious, would more RAM be hotter?)
At least 250GB SSD

Battery life is not important.
Appearance is not important
Trackpad quality is not important
Keyboard : not particularly important.
Weight is not important, but lighter preferred if it would make no difference in noise.
Cost - ideally less than 2000 Euro. Cheaper is always nice.

Is it possible for max noise levels to be less than 36 dBA?
I would be interested in knowing how much quieter a 17 inch laptop could be made with same specifications...?

Thank you very much in advance for your help and guidance!

    Your best choice is probably the P751DM2-G.
    It´s actually more silent then most laptops because it does have big thick fan and as you know the bigger the fans the less noise they make.
    I would go for the 6700K / 1060 combo if you really want a silent machine.
