New case suggestions, quiet and cool

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm starting a new build and giving my old build to my girlfriend. I currently have an Antec P180 and like it, but I'd rather just give the whole thing to her rather than futz around switching it into another case. As a result, I need a new case. I want it to be fairly cool and quiet. I've thought about just grabbing a P183, but wanted to get recommendations from here. I think I'll have to stick with a mid-tower because of space constraints and I want it to be quiet, because it sits in my bedroom and I don't want it sounding like a jet is taking off in there. I prefer cases without windows or neon lights or anything like that. I'm somewhat concerned about what kind of aftermarket coolers can fit in any given case too. So, should I just grab a P183 or would something else work better?

I would buy a CoolerMaster CM 690 Pure Black Edition case (if i had low budget) for just 80$. You can do so many things with that case and come with 3 120mm fans installed and you can up to 4 additional fans.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137
