For what purpose? ATX, MicroATX, MiniITX or another form factor? What components do you have/are going to get to put in it?

Asus P280, Antec Solo II, Fractal Define R4, Corsair 550D. All are top tier and reviewed here. Pick one you like the best.

That said, a silent case is only as good as the stuff you put inside. While the XFX PSU is a solid Seasonic build, it's not the quietest thing out there and 750W is overkill. Your stressed load power will be in the neighborhood of 260W. Consider an 80+ Gold or Platinum PSU. Gold: The Seasonic x400 fanless or the x-560 semi-passive. Platinum: Kingwin LZP-550 semi-passive. or wait a bit for Mike C's review of the new Seasonic SS-520FL.

I'd also recommend the cases mentioned by CA_steve. And as he says, a quiet case can only dampen the overall noise by a tiny amount. The best way to accomplish a quiet built is by having quiet components.

Hi,

Recently I found out about anoher brand that makes silent PC cases and although it's new to the market, it has been receiving some fairly detailed reviews it seems.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/na ... iew,1.html

http://www.overclockers.com/nanoxia-dee ... ase-review

They also have a successor out now, called the "Deep Silence 2": http://www.nanoxia-world.com/cases/deep ... black.html

The noise / performance specs of those case fans look very promising IMO, but I don't have any personal experience with the brand.

One of the bequiet! E9 Straight Power PSUs would work fine. The fan rpm profile is flat until ~50% load and then starts to ramp up. Getting either the 400W or 450W model means fan ramp starting at 200-225W.
