    Fans make a lot of noise and this case is not water cooled.

    You can get various cases that are virtually noise free, Antec Sonata springs to mind. They have large 120mm fans that spin at low RPM so don't make alot of noise.

    Yeah. Ebay or just buy the computer and sell the parts. I don't think Sony sells just the case unless maybe you actually write to the company and see if it's at all possible to purchase a case through them or from them.

    Sony won't sell a fanless case. It is a product differentiator and they wan't to take a 25% markup on the whole package not just $10 worth of tin...

    If you want a quiet case you will have to go to a case manufacturer or mod your own.

    And why did you say the case is not liquid cooled. Quote from the link you dropped:
    "The unique liquid-cooling system and advanced noise-reduction technology deliver powerful, reliable performance from an incredibly cool, quiet system."

    It is liquid cooled which means all the components are special and your stuff won't fit in.

    OMG who's gonna buy that sort of thing. I'd love to read some spoiled brat user reviews of that thing going...

    "Yeah, I love this case! It's completely worth the $1200 my parents paid for it!"

    Like several of us already said.

    You can't buy the Sony case. It is proprietary (only for Sony systems).

    It won't work with your off the shelf parts either.

    Should I repeat this in another language for clarity? :dead:

    How about that "Pear Computer" posted on another thread? That thing certainly has got to better than an Apple machine. No way does it even look like an Apple computer knockoff.
