Help deciding: Fortran vs Zalman vs Antec

Well, as I mentioned in another post, I re-built one of my PCs in an Antec 3700 AMB case. I bought the case without a power supply. For the time being, I'm borrowing my TruePower 430 from my old 1080 AMG case. I'd like to put the 1080 AMG back together and sell it, so I need a power supply for my ne...

What hardware to use for mounting 120 mm fan and grill?

Well, my Antec 3700AMB just came in. I gutted my main PC, which was previously housed in an Antec 1080AMG (with four 80 mm fans). I ordered the 3700 AMB with no power supply; I'm currently recycling the Antec TruePower 430 PSU from the old case. So far the newly built computer is extremly quiet. It'...

CompuCase LX-6A19 Black/Silver pictures anyone?

I like the looks of the the CompuCase LX-6A19 . (This is basically the same as the Antec 3700 BQE and AMB.) I really like the looks of the Black & Silver LX-6A19 available at Directron ---except for the silver part of the bezel. (I realize Coolcases.com sells these as well, but the prices are quite ...

Well, the 3700 AMB is looking better and better... the price certainly can't be beat! Or you could just get the AMB without a ps from Directron and save a few $. I just ordered an AMB without a PSU for around $50 shipped. Could you provide a link to that? I checked Directron's site, but couldn't fin...

Sorry, my post was a bit confusing... what I meant was, as you said, the 3700AMB power supply is loud. If I went with that case, I would probably want to replace the power supply with one that is quieter. On the other hand, the 660AMG comes with the "TruePower" power supply, which seems to be fairly...

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! It looks like I can't go wrong with the Antec 3700 series cases, especially considering that two 3700 AMB can be had for the cost of one FK-330. I'm just not particularly excited about the looks of the 3700 series (though I usually like conservative looks and color...

Aopen A600, Fong Kai FK-330 Experience? Thoughts?

I've been doing a bit of case research lately. I currently have two computers built with the Antec Performance Plus 1080AMG cases. These cases have four 80 mm fans each ; the noise is tolerable, but I think I can do better. I read the SPCR review for the Fong Kai FK-330 . Note that Tom's also did a ...
