    Yup, I'm already looking at what to get for my next computer...
    Today's question is:
    Other than the Antec Sonata, what other cases come with (made for) 120mm fans ? I'm trying to go quiet.
    P.S. I like the side mounted HDD feature also found on the Sonata case.

    My UNEEC cases with 5 x 34cfm 80mm fans are very quite and very cool (3 in and 2 out plus ya don't need to move vast amounts of air, just need to move it in the right way).

    Four words for ya man :) ... Old Drywall Hole Drill :D

    Edit: oops forgot rest of post :)

    I managed to find an old (but not torn up) 120mm drywall hole drill... Needless to say, it worked great :) In my 2.8ghz p4, I have 4 120mm fans (one front (intake), one on window side (intake), one top (exhaust), one on other side by hdd bay (intake)) and got 2 80mm's exhausting on the back... bloody thing sounds not so much like a wind tunnel anymore w/ the 120's :D (I also used an old 80mm hole drill to remove the metal grills that come on cases to protect fingers... and just used metal guards (low resistance)) so she don't make as much noise as she once did.

    Wow... for a small case, that looks very nice. I like the side-ways drive brackets, also. Nifty! :)

    I'm not sure about the passive cooling near the top of the side panels...
    So far the plan is to match this case (or another if anyone has a suggestion) with a stand-alone H2O setup (something like a Koolance EXOS)
    Any thoughts on this setup ? Ideas for a different setup ?
