Rated 5 out of 5 by wfdc Amazing case
This is a truly excellent case. Not only does it feel well made, but the noise reduction is truly excellent. The supplied fans are also very quiet and performing very well.
Only slight niggle is there is a bit of information missing from the installation guide, but as somebody who has not built a pc for a long time and tried again, I still didn't have any real issue

Amazingly easy to build with this case! Plenty of room, excellent coolling and all at a great price. Perfect

I had had my fair share of cases, from "silent", to "High airflow".
I strive for silence, and in doing so I spend more money than most on fans etc (Noctua).
I've had a Coolermaster HAF X, and personally I prefer THIS case for both looks, quietness, and the temperatures within the case.
I have the chimney closed, but can still barely hear it when open (I have 2 Noctua NF-F12's on a radiator).
The supplied Nanoxia fans are exceptional for bundled fans, which is a truly wonderful surprise (specs said so, but in actuality I was still surprised), I haven't needed or wanted to swap them out of Noctua fans (which is in itself a money saver!)
Everything about this case oozes class, I used one in my gaming rig, grabbed another for my backup machine (which i'm reselling WITH this case as a hackintosh, because it seems all hackintoshes have cheap nasty cases)

Maybe because my last case was ancient, this one was a real revelation. A joy to work with. Plenty of space (with one small caveat) and easy to get at everything. Overall, really good but with a few small niggles:
1) I'd read the sides were tricky to get back on but I thought "How hard can it be?". My last case sides were a nightmare. But these are actually worse. Three hands would be a bonus. In short, you'll need to lie it on its side and then it gets reasonably easy. But an annoying niggle nonetheless.
2) I had a problem with one hard drive transmitting vibration to the case. I actually think this only showed up because the case is so quiet that things not audible before became so. I still think they could improve the HD mounting though so it doesn't happen. It's not rocket science. Elastic bands and fiddling sorted this one out.
3) If I was being super-fussy, I'd say it could do with just a cm more space behind the motherboard. Cramming the cables in was a bit of a challenge.
But it's quiet. Really quiet. Really, really quiet. I keep double-checking that I've switched it on because I don't hear it start up. I am very pleased with it, despite the above niggles.
