Hi! I'm building HTPC/media center from the spare parts - e8400 Core 2, ATI 2600XT Passive, 4 1TB Green drives and Corsair HX520W PSU. It will be sitting just few feet away from a viewing place, so has to be as quiet as possible.
Initially I was going to buy PC-C60B from Lian-Li, under-volt everything, damper the walls and be done with it, but then while browsing I've stubmled across 6000B nMediaPC case:
and I was struck as how much it resembles my ACR 520, which is going to be sitting on top of it:http://forum.ih8mud.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=576307&stc=1&d=1322436325
- same black slotted steel, same acrylic panel, same size. Overall they seem to match each other very well, so I've started to consider getting myself an nMedia case.
I couldn't find any reviews other then this one:http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?o ... mitstart=1
Given that amount of noise is critical, will it be possible to build something good out of it if I replace all case fans. (the case is very open)
