I can highly recommend this case, as I have used one for the past few
years now for my Myth frontend/backend. There's plenty of space inside
and psu / drives / motherboard are in separate compartments so it's nice
an tidy in there. Room for two HDD's and two dvd drives if you want.
Those big exhaust fans have a 3-speed switch attached which I've always
had set to low - at that speed I can barely here the fans with the even
with the lid off. The PSU fan is also barely audible.
The only thing I had to mod slightly was the bright blue HDD led that I
stuck some coloured celophane over to dim it a bit because mine is in a
glass fronted unit and it lit up the entire living room everytime there
was some disk activity!
The case itsself is slightly wider than a standard hifi seperate, and
quite a bit deeper (had to cut the back out of my unit to get it in!)
But it fits in ok style wise.
