That's why I ripped them off in the first place.

i love this case! i built one for a mate. very sturdy. i dont know why ppl here are sayinh its flimsy :S i thought my case was pretty good and strong but that one is heavier and a bit stronger.

I use an R3 - I wanted to make a whisper quiet PC after enduring ear rapage for many years. I think the R3 is the best out-of the box solution. I am sure, I could have bought an antec P183 and modified myself with foam/fans - to get it even more silent - but the R3 does the job so well I can't complain.

The first thing to get in terms of quietness is a good aftermarket cooler for both the GPUs and CPU - this will make your pc alot more quiet. Next up is quiet fans that move some air around the case. And your set - silent performance FTW

hm... both are great cases, but the R3 has one big flaw over the P183, you can put cards in it larger than 28cm, which is a problem for the high end amd cards in the x9xx series (the 6950 reference is 29,7 cm long). also, the top of the R3 seems to be a bit flimsy
