    Hm sounds good. I was considering the Sonata III but I wasn't sure if it would keep my parts nice and cool as my Sonata II made my other setup overheat (but then again, it was a Prescott setup so I shouldn't have expected any less). Hope you enjoy your new build :D

    I forgot,its also small. the 8800 GTX will not fit unless you modify the case. here's a pic

    It won't fit without modification

    Edit: not my case but a member from another forum ;)

    I think he's showing sympathy for the pain it must be, to get good cable management, with a power arrangement like that.

    Heh you guys never doubt how a case can affect how silent a machine is...

    My 3 120mm fans and a pci slot cooler inside my other system-
    Intel 915 @ 2.8
    Antec Sonatta2
    Antec Smart Power 2 450watt
    2 15k scsi 320 drives

    After I added the sound dampening to this machine and now its being used as a server its a dead whisper... That case he is using is much quieter than this old case, and he has much less fanage, let alone missing 15k drives... I don't know how many of you have heard those in most cases, they are like industrial warehouse loud. Mine aren't even mounted in suspension, and that really helps.

    ******************
    Looks good, I actually contemplated buying that case when I got my Lian-Li.
    *Which by the way is also pretty darn quiet even with my 2 1950's *zalmans*

    I know about that, I temporarily used a mousemat in my old case and it negated my PSU noise :p
