I would look into Lian-Li cases if you haven't bought one yet, they are built excellently, and still have some style to them.

I've heard that the Antec is an awesome case, but you have to clean out the dust constantly, and takes a while to do decent cable management. It's not a "sit it and forget it" kinda case.

Like I said, I don't have one, but I know people that do. I think they may have taken one or more off, either not enough airflow with them or they were noisy. Can't remember.

even if they reduce air flow, 2 fans and a 200mm big boy makin neg pressure in the case should be plenty of extra air flow...

an people that dont like a bit of noise from there case, are babys IMO

If you have the case next to you like I do, you would understand. If it's on the floor under your desk, of course it isn't a big deal. But I only have room for mine on my desk right next to the monitor. So the fans really get annoying.
