Accoustipack is $110. A bit pricey, but if you need it, you need it.

Antec P160, Lian-Li V1100, various outher replies

Thanks for all the replies to my original post. Actually, a tad less flamers than I half expected. On the selection by SPCR of cases to review, which I guess this comes down to, I appreciate that there are cost and donation factors. I was not/am not saying, that everything else equal, a steel case w...

SPCR and Aluminum Anti-Bias?

First, let me say I like very much SPCR reviews, there's really nothing equivalent or as in depth out on the net, SPCR was first to focus on making PCs quieter, and it's really still the best on the web at that. But I've always wondered a bit if there wasn't a bit of bias against Aluminum cases. Gra...

Raidmax Virgo 811

The Raidmax Virgo 811 looks reasonably interesting, possibly fairly quiet, but it's hard to tell:

Not sure what the front fan is. Is it 120mm?

How cool are the top card slots?

The V1100 looks like an interesting and potentially fairly quiet case, but I just have to wonder if the top card slots are really all that cool. Just seems like hot air would like to rise, and there's not a lot of active cooling up there to cause it not to eddy arround a bit, and heat up the cards. ...

Lian-Li PC-V1100 Cooling?

The review at: http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/cases/Lian_Li_PC-V1100/pg_5.htm does give an editiors choice rating, which isn't too bad. Adso said the reveiw was so-so, and they do list some things they don't like, but I'd say it was mostly positive. Looking at the case, it seems rather diffe...
