Case's Quietness'

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hm i've been thinking about buying a new case, because my crappy 30 dollar one is super loud.
I want good airflow/clear side too, so thats why i'm turned toward the Antec 900.

What cases are cool, silent, and have a window?

P.S.: How's the TT SHARK?

the 900 is good, it was the case I was debating between and the armor I got. If you want quiet, a lot of people will recommend you the p180, it also comes in black, but it got no window on the side.

Quiet depends on the moving parts inside the case. Using quiet fans with rubber screws and a quieter CPU fan along with a complete noise dampening system will quiet your computer down more than just buying a new case.
