Two weeks ago I built a low-power, AM2 office computer for a relative with this case, and I expected a more positive response to this case from the SPCR community. The case may not be well suited for a completely silent system (without switching to an AC-DC + DC-DC PS), but it's the most quiet stock...

I don't have a way to objectively measure the noise it makes, but I'll give you my opinion of it within the next week or so. As of now, I can just say what looks promising, beyond the reports of a smoo...
