How are these cases noise wise? I've got a Mountain Mods U2-UFO and I'm thinking of trading it or selling it to get another case. My wife says it's too big and too loud. mad.gif

Up to you, less internal cleaning but if your going for looks....
As in the fans, the I like the nzxt fans for the 200mm on the top, if you want to be able to turn your fan lights off that's the way to go, there are also bitfenix 200mm which also have thats header for the switch the fan leds on and off, its not the same exact header as the nzxt fans but you probably can get it to work, but as for the hole spacing on the fan is another story whether or not they will fit because there is no 200mm standard in the computer fan industry. Same goes for coolermaster 200mm fan, not sure if the spacing is the same, maybe someone else can confirm the fan if that have used before.
For sound damping its a personal preference. Does it work, yes. But my theory is if you don't have enough air flow then it would act as in insulator, but i could be wrong, but in terms of the "acoustic" brand, great stuff, esp with the ultimate pack. its thick, cleaner to cut, i think it looks better than others.

Thx. I'll be sticking with Nzxt for the 200mm fans since it's easier that way. I'm thinking about getting LED for the other fans but not sure about the performance on them.

Anyone else?
Quote:
1. What cpu fans fit in the phantom case that does not block the 200mm fans on top around $50 or less.? (Planning on purchasing the CoolerMaster Hyper 212)
2. Should I buy some dust filters?
3. What are some relatively quiet/good performance fans that I can replace/add into the phantom? (With/without LED but prefer LED)
4. Should I go for some sound proofing materials like this? http://www.acousticpc.com/acousti_products_apl_acoustipack_lite_pc_sound_proofing_kit.html
I really like this case and want a quiet pc so I don't mind adding or replacing components to make it quieter. Since I'll be downloading and leaving the computer on for some time.

I was thinking it might be good to keep the big fans up top?

Ok well the bottom isn't bad either. With the RS kit you can put the rad in push/pull on the bottom. Having the fans up top too would be very beneficial. Then you can have the rad fans as intake and exhaust it right out the top. thumb.gif

Its all about the fans. Get quieter ones for yours and you should be fine.

Please take your time with modding the Case, your mod just doesn't look good.
