I am in the process of ordering parts, and usually I could care less what case I get, but this time I want something roomier, and with better features. I am looking at the HAF 912, Rosewill CHALLENGER, GAMMA Classic. They are all in the same price range. When reading the reviews, I read that they are not the quietest cases ever designed. My question is which case should I get and are my noise concerns overblown.
My build wont have the newest and greatest, it will have a 6 core phenom, mid range video card, ssd, ATX motherboard, and the other usual components.
Get the HAF 912. Replace the front fan with a CM megaflow 200mm fan, the back fan with a COUGAR Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing 120mm fan, and put another Cougar on the side, and you have a silent case with great airflow. You can put another Megaflow on the top unless you want a radiator, then it wont fit.
