Chalk up another vote for the 620. The lickle 60mm at the back was by far
the loudest component in my system as well, until I 7V'ed it. I'll
eventually figure out some way of swapping it for a huge 80 or 92mm or
I also love the ability to run a proper ATX PSU in it too, so I don't have
to pay through the nose for a decent PSU. There's currently an Antec
TruPower 330 in there, which is whisper-quiet. Even with the fans on full,
it is remarkably hush hush, and even with the fans on low the case stays
remarkably cool. I wish I'd bought two of the things.
