Looking for Antec Solo Replacement

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I love my Antec Solo, but the latest gen video cards just won't fit in it (specifically, the GTX 570). Looking for a replacement for a Sandy Bridge build. My needs are pretty simple: I want a case that's attractive (in the same, simple way that the Solo is...I'm not looking for windows, interior LEDs, etc.), quiet, and as compact as possible. An exhaust fan on the right side of the case (and not the left) and a USB 3.0 port would be great bonuses too.

Thanks for any suggestions!

How quiet? The Solo made for a very quiet system. Of course your new graphics card would be the noisiest part. You can go for an Antec P183 (or any P1xx series) but you mentioned compact.

Lian Li makes nice looking cases. The Lian Li PC-B25S is reasonably quiet (not as much as the Solo or P1xx).

Really though, you can make most cases pretty quiet as long as you avoid the cases that are mesh all over. My Lian Li Lancool PC-K7B is reasonably quiet even with stock GTX 295 cooling. The incessantly ticking clock in my room is noisier.
