HDD noise is, in and of itself, HDD noise. Sure, having the window present will reduce it's effectiveness at containing sound within the case itself, but nowadays if your HDD's are loud, this should not be blamed on the case. No matter which case you have.

I do not have the windowed version and I do not even have a platter of any type in this rig at all. But I have been all touchy feely with a few co-worker rigs at our lan parties (I like to get hands-on but I stay within reason wink.gif ) and you can't hear there HDD's.

As noted, this applies to all cases in my opinion. My CM690 II Black Steel (which practically bleeds sound) has been converted in to a server and has 6 3tb barracuda's in it and I can't even hear the drives in it and it's running 24/7.

That said, there solidly designed cases and between mine and the other three people who own these (2 with windows) we all agree that if you want a near silent case with great airflow and tons of options, you can't go wrong with the R4. Either with the panel, or without the panel. thumb.gif

If you want a silent PC, don't put any HDDs in it. Just use SSDs and put all your storage on a remote NAS.

I have the R3, and I find it to be rather flimsily built and good at amplifying HDD noise. That said, I have some much better built cases, and HDDs always end up being the most audible component in them too. The Antec p183 was the only case I've ever owned with decent stock HDD mounts (the only case that I didn't feel the need to suspend drives in). The P183 was several classes above the fractal in terms of build quality, and IIRC, cost).
