I'm leaving my Sonata II after years for a new silent case.
After a lot of research I narrowed down my options to:
Define r4 (impressed about how much this case is recommended here)
Thermaltake New Soprano (equally impressed that no one seems to bother with that case)
Obsidian 550d
CM Silencio 652
Before reading some threads here I was leaning towards the New Soprano, based on its great features (hot swap hdd above, 2usb 2.0, 2 usb 3.0 etc, terrific cable management, led fan), its great looks and glowing reviews I'd read. In all truth these reviews were not concentrated on the "silence" part of the case, and I cannot find a review here, that's why I'm posting this, since this factor is extremely important to me.
Is there someone using the Thermaltake case and how is it compared to Define R4 with regard to noise? Soprano is clearly loaded with more features than R4 but I don't know about its noise. Also what about the other two cases?
I've taken care of the rest of the parts of the build, so they emit the least possible noise.

Hi balux,

Did you ever get around to decide or get advice on this?
I am debating between the R4 and the New Soprano.

Thanks in advance.

Get Corsair Carbide 330R, it's better than both R4 and R5, for the same price.
