I have the T2, but don't use it any more for a few resons:
- I had a SATA drive in the suspendend HD casing; the SATA connector touched the case and transmitted the vibration to the side panel. I was looking for SATA cables with shorter rigid connector end, I found one shorter than my original, but the problem persisted.
- I have an Abit A8n Ultra MB; the IDE connector on the MB is placed in such a way, that when if I plug in an IDE connector (for the DVD or secondary drive), that IDE connector touches the HDD suspension; again, transmitting vibration.
- I thought of modding the PSU fan voltage, but was simply afraid of doing so. I may reduce noise, but if I get around or modify the regulation of the PSU system, then what would happen during a hot summer? I sometimes have 35 C ambient.
For these reasons I replaced the T2 with an Antec SLK3000B. The noise difference is dramatic.
When replacing the T2 with the SLK 300B I originally thought of potentially looking deeper into the PSU fan regulation of the T2 (not simply slowing down the fans, but doing it intelligently) + using it with a different MB and PATA drive - building another silent system in it later for a friend of mine in the future - but alas, when I took out my HDD from the drive suspension system, the rigid plastic part broke. - So much about this case
The only good thing about this case for me was that I got it cheap - their distributer closed down their shop and sold out everything dirt cheep; this one was less than ~100 EURO; I can survive this financially. If I had purchesed it at the normal price, then I would have been very-very angry.
Some additional thoughts (after initially posting it):
The case is very small, it was difficult for me to install the MB. I had to push / force the MB into place with significant force; I was afraid of breaking something on it. (The reason for this was that - as already mentioned - there was no clearance between the IDE connector on the MB and the HDD suspension.)
Another problem (already mentioned in another post): the case door was sometimes loudly resonating. It was enough to gently touch it to get it silent - but then, after a few minutes it started again...
So my evaluation: great idea, bad design (not enough clearances at multiple places); crappy implementation (resonating door, rigid breaking plastic parts, loud PS even when idle).
