Most manufacturers believe that simply eliminating all the cracks and holes
in a case will result in a quieter system. This is true to some degree, but
it is a much smaller factor than most believe. Slowing the system fans
by a small degree can easily offset any extra noise "escaping" from
various vents, and the extra ventilation can be very beneficial, especially
for the hotter regions of the system which do not receive much direct airflow. The fact is that thin metal panels are not very effective at blocking noise.

For gaming systems, it is unrealistic to seal
up the case due to the sheer amount of heat put out
by modern graphics cards and, to a lesser degree, CPUs. For a gaming machine, what you really need is lots

cards. The Antec Nine Hundred Two seems to fit the bill. It's a spacious, affordable,
user-friendly case and as a bonus it ships with four fans, each with their own
The Nine Hundred Two panel surfaces are composed of sturdy molded
plastic with a pleasant matte finish.
The Nine Hundred Two looks very much like the original Nine

painted black, which looks more appealing through the side window compared
to standard issue grey, and the exterior has been revamped to emphasize the
case's 200 mm ceiling fan.
Accessories: a bag of screws and an adapter for an external 3.5"
