A colleague recently recommended the Fractal Design Define R3 for a quiet build, but I want to do some modest OCing and wondered what the consensus on this case was. I was considering the Gelid Solutions Tranquillo Rev.2 as a cooler for this case. The other case option I'd previously considered was the Zalman Z9 (with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ Evo). Any comments on any of this is very welcome!



PS: For some background, here's the rest of my planned build:
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz (OEM)
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Mobo
Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Low Profile Vengeance memory
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB OC
Adata HM series 550W 80 plus Bronze PSU
OCZ 120Gb Agility 3 SSD
WD 1TB Caviar Black 3.5" SATA-III
Sony AD-7261S optical drive
Win7 Home Premium

if it is anything like the define mini, or the 3000 then it is very nicely built. I've heard that others are quieter with the same kit, but can't recall what right now.
