Besides the quiet fans and extra sound insulation, I was pleased to find that this case has some extra niceties: - an air filter built into the front panel air intake - easy click-in rails for all the drives - a nice side panel that opens quickly - fancy blue LEDs that shine out the front when the computer is on (can be disabled if you want). - plentiful power connectors inside for drives, etc. The only drawback: - the fans are variable speed, so they speed up if the computer is warm inside. I found the calibration was a bit over-cautious: even in a normal room, the fans speed up after 5 minutes of run time and make a bit more noise. I'd prefer to have a manual control to slow them back down, and voluntarily accept slightly higher internal temperatures. However, you can buy these controls separately and add them on.

So quiet, what a feeling

by M on 11/12/2004

I had heard many good things about antec and it was a great deal when I found it at whosave dot coom (shows you online sales). paid only about $60 for it at the time, after rebate. I am very happy with it, looks great, lcd light is bright(use as night light), quietest I know. I should point out that the power supply in this case is already worth some $50. so if you can get it for less than $100, that would be great. If not, you should still consider it if quiet sleep is your thing.
