but um what if you spill coffee around that thing?

anyhow how quiet is that 250mm fan at the lowest setting?
obviously the HD had better be very quiet.

Unless you got only SSDs and passively cooled GPU and CPU, that case would never be quiet enough.

Old news.

Most cases don't make any noise - it is the components that typically cause problems :lol: The Antec-supplied fans in the mini-Skeleton are dire (see my opinion here).

Frankly speaking, I think Antec Skeleton is an epic fail. An open test bench that couldn't accommodate most 120mm fan tower coolers! If they were to take development/exploration of open bench market seriously, they shouldn't release Skeleton to begin with as many crazy OCers and Silencers prefer tower design coolers.

the idea behind the skeleton is pretty good, but the product looks like the designers didn't think it through...

Do you need a tower cooler if you use it? I agree that they should allow for it btw
