Hi,

I narrowed down my choice to these two systems

Antec Sonata III, Black 500W = 108 Euros

Or

Antec Solo Mid Tower, Piano = 80 Euros
Cooler Master Sileo, = 60 Euros

with any of these psu

CoolMaster Silent Pro 500W/700W PSU (70 Euros/96 Euros)
Corsair HX650W (116 Euros) (also 620W Is also available)

Can anybody tell me if the Solo/Sileo + PSU is much quieter than the Sonata III?
In addition, from review on this web site it seems that the CoolMaster Silent Pro is quiter than the Corsair, however user comment sometimes differ.


Thanks

Pierpaolo

Any of those would be a good choice, but how about the Fractal Design Define R2 http://www.quietpc.com/ie-en-eur/products/ultragrade/fd-definer2 which is not too much of a stretch at around €100. To keep within an overall €200 budget, I would go Fractal Design again for the Tesla 550W http://www.quietpc.com/ie-en-eur/products/powersupplies/fd-telsa-psus.

WOW, I had not seen the Fractal case mentioned here before. NICE CASE!

Almost sorry I got the SOLO. I like the feet on the Fractal!

Hi,
The Fractal case is excellent, however my other options are available locally.
Do you think the SOLO case with a Corsair VX 450W PSU is much more silent than the sonata III?
