Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into the drive noise for sure. The reason I've pointed to the fans as the main source of noise in the system is that (highly unscientific, I know) I tried disconnecting them and booted up the system without them - and the level of noise improved a lot - it's not an...

Hmmm. Yeah, I've been looking at that Silverstone ST50-EF Plus SC as well. So the Enermax is probably out, as is the VX450. I'll probably go for the HX520 - like the modularity, and should I decide to move that PSU to another box at some point, I won't be stuck with cables that are too short :D Anyw...

Hmmm. I'm been looking around for an alternative power supply since this Antec PSU mess does not seem like it will be sorted anytime soon. The current shortlist seems to be: 1. Tagan EasyCon 430 2. Q-Technology Gold QT-3350 (from QuietPC in the UK) 3. Enermax Liberty 400W Which to get? I'd love to g...

Thanks for the welcome. I've had both the 1030 and 1040 series cases, as well as a Sonata (didn't like that one, way too cramped), 3700BQE and SLK3000B. The TX640B was the one I liked the most of those - mainly because it didn't have a front door, but the Antec TruPower PSU's make too much noise IMO...

Advice needed - P180 system build

Looking for a little advice here.... I've had some really quiet systems over the years, but am currently running on a Shuttle SN25P SFF box. This is not, and will probably never be, even remotely quiet. So, I've decided to move into a miditower system again. Currently, this is what I expect to build...
