Moving case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Basically...

I have the antec 902...

I want a quieter pc...

I'm going to be buying a new CPU cooler, so i figure as i have to take my mobo out as 902 hasn't got a CPU cutout i may aswell buy a new case now and move it straight in ;]

Any suggestions guys?

P.S i live in the UK. No Newegg! please use; www.Novatech.co.uk / www.scan.co.uk / www.aria.co.uk / www.overclockers.co.uk

If it can be bought on novatech that'd be good as i can pop over to their store today... if not i'll HAVE to get next day delivery =p

This is the best I can think of in terms of silence, the Antec P183:

/offtopic: I have the P182 which is simply amazing; it's very silent compared to what I previously had and also provides decent cooling. The P183 has slightly better airflow than what I have. The one disadvantage of these cases is that they are very very difficult to work in them; not that things are cramped, but they are just slightly more difficult to reach; this in turns allows for an impeccable cable management, you're practically forced to set all things properly.

I can't get the 183 my dad has the 182 :-p he will just moan if I get the 183 haha.
I kinda want a window aswell as black interior for show :-p

Thoughts on the 800D?
600T? (possibly the special white edition when it comes in stock on scan)
FT02 (special edition red interior from scan)
