I eventually decided against that case I was planning on getting, and want suggestions for a new one, it should have good airflow, 4 or more external 5.25inch drive bays, at least one external 3.5inch drive bay, and be very very quiet, noise is my prime consern

Finding cases is nothing like finding other shit though finding cases is really easy just use a newegg.com power search and i think youll find a case to suit ur needs

personally i've used nothing but raidmax cases in all of my builds. their quality is top-notch and the airflow is great (their cases usually come with anywhere from 3 to 5 fans).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811156135 is what i use currently, budget but does it's job well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Page=1&N=50001622+2000090007&Submit=ENE&Subcategory=7&Manufactory=1622 is newegg's entire raidmax lineup. im sure you'll find one to your liking if you read some reviews.

Hey, Deathwarder.Whats up?. So you changed your mind again. If you want quiet, co with an Antec. This model is super silent: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=140118 It is a little pricey, but "you get what you pay for". This one looks cool & quiet, too:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=371299 Did you give up on the "blingy" lights? ANTEC, COOLERMASTER, THERMALTAKE, NXZT, all those are great cases. They cost a bit more, but they ALL provide, cool & quit, reliability.

yeah, I want my computer shut up and quiet, it is very loud, and cpu temps are hitting 70c underload with nothing else in my case in use. So, I want quiet, cool, efficient, so this fan ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink - Retail at Newegg.com and a case that I must decide on, everyone suggests antec, so they are probably the best choice, also I found out that my onboard hd audio was eating up lots of cpu time, so I am getting this sound card Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE Sound Card - OEM at Newegg.com and this thermal paste Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - OEM at Newegg.com
