Thanks for the reply.
The PC isn't built yet (waiting until november), but I am sure about the case as it has the features I want. Most reviews say the fans are noisy though, hence this thread.
As I mentioned, it's for gaming (and other not so heat-generating tasks), with an overclocked CPU (if Sandybridge, around 4.5 to 4.7GHz) using something like the Thermalright Archon
as a cooler. The graphics solution will have to handle a triple screen setup (5760 x 1080), so it's gonna be a very beefy single card like the GTX590 if I can find one, or 2 cards in SLI or Crossfire. I am still working on a solution that allows aftermarket GPU coolers like the Accelero XTREME Plus II
(or better, have to do more research). There will likely be some case damping as well, to further take the edge off any fan noise. PSU will be a 80+ gold standard from Corsair.
Right now I guess it looks like I should stick with a great 140mm in the front, and perhaps another 140mm intake in the top to provide cool air directly to the CPU cooler, but I am hoping I have missed a great 200mm fan in the line up that can provide enough quiet, cool air to it all. It would save me some hassle. I've been doing watercooling mainly, so not so used to high-end aircooled systems.
