I really, really wanted to get that but decided to wait until 
mouse/touchscreen control lands into Myth. That sure seems like some 
overkill on the ventilation, though. 2x80 rear, 80 on the side, optional 
2x80 or 92, AND the power supply fan?

Cannot comment firsthand on the 17 but I'm extremely pleased with the 13 
I just built. Noise is not a problem at all. The ventilation is 
outstanding. The sides are perfed from the front to 1/2 way back which 
shows that they know these pieces are going into A/V environments.

I chucked the 60mm fans that Joe mentioned and sealed up the grills. Not 
using the front fan, yet. PS is a Seasonic SS-330 with intelligent 120 
fan and does the job all by itself so far.
