    I used to be in to case modding along with a good friend it got to a point where it was costing serious money each time and many many weekends on them...ended up with me having 9x80mm fans 1x120mm (not counting cpu and all the mini ones) and fans on everything all these were wired up to switches adding total control...case heavily perspexed...windows in cd-rom drives/doors/case top ect...fancy leds for the switches and to power the Pc and all fans/lights ect 2x300watt external Psu`s with additional active cooling.

    The air it could push through when all fans were on was ....still giggling :D ....amazing...but was it loud :eek: .

    One day i just snapped with the noise...stripped it down...bought a shuttle barebone and went into quiet modding it.....now its nearly silent (but mad overclocking is no more).Quiet is the way to go:p .
