You might consider that any case is silent if there is no mechanical gizmo attached to it (like a fan or hard drive) that makes noise.

Well I also like the way the door works on the front, it opens and slides back not just opens. This way I can slide around in my chair and not worry about sliding into the door and cracking it off. Here is a quote from tech tv that explains it better...
"The Dimension XPS sports a distinct cobalt blue and charcoal gray case packed with lots of well-planned touches. Three 5.25-inch drive bays and an integrated floppy drive are concealed behind a double-hinged door that can fold back against the side of the case. Unlike doors on other performance systems we've seen, this door can fold back flush against the side of the case, preventing accidents. "
