Well i don't think he said he wanted a silent case. And the AP181 on low are 700rpm 18db according to SilverStone.

There is a mesh panel for the black version as well, you just have to buy it separately while the white one comes with one already.

I'd suggest the NZXT Phantom personally. Many places for fans to be installed, and provides nice air cooling solutions. With a bit of modding it can be an awesome water cooling case as well. I've got the black Phantom but you can also get it in white and red as well. You won't have any issues fitting any graphics cards as well as there is plenty of space. Cable management is nice for the case as well.

You couldn't check their site?

You should also let us know your noise in DB limit, as well as your preffered size.

I heard that you can only fit NZXT fans in that case because of how they mount. Is this true?

Ok, I agree with that in regards to the Antec 300,600, & 900. However the 1200 is fantastic for cable management. Yesterday I finally did pro cable management, and the 6 cutout's still avail despite full ATX came in VERY handy.

I like my Antec 1200 but have to admit that the cable management isn't the greatest. People literally do custom drilling to make it descent but here is my setup...

and here is the airflow...

The airflow is excellent and I added two additional Tri Cool fans, for the side and another to the mid front to cool the videocards. Now my video cards don't ever blow at full blast. To give an example, the tri-cools set to full blast are no louder than my CD drive spinning up... Happy with my setup

From what I see, the HAF X has the best performance for GPU cooling.

I love the HAF series, but I'm also a big fan of the NZXT Phantom. And according to the link in the quote, it has pretty good standard temps.

In case you didn't see it already, here is the chart showing the out of the box performance of all the latest cases. The RV02 they used didnt have the AP181's, so it will perform the same as the FT02 they reviewed.

I saw that, but the CPU temps were average. So IMO it wouldn't be worth the 1*C.
