I've been trying to make my computer as quite as possible for a while now. Just got a new case to help the cause. It's an Antec P180 that was designed with help from the guy who runs SilentPCReview.com. I think it's great that Antec used him as a resource. I've been reading that site for a few years now. Lots of really good tips in there. So far the case is working very nicely. Someday, I still want to build one completely out of wood and build it into the desk itself. I'm convinced that I can make one that is effectively silent.
