Default The X-Navigator

My... Goodness, I'm in love with this case, how awesome is the X-Navigator! That has to be the coolest case I have ever seen. Alas i've read reviews saying the 5 fans make it NOISY, I'm just wondering if anybody here has one and can offer their opinion.
Thanks

Yes it looks good, but the fans are very noisy, i cant hear them over the music i play though, so its all good for me.

It is a noisy case, and I must say, I DO NOT like Aspire PSUs! They are terrible! Very unstable voltages, and their overvolt/overwatt controls are shabby, and don't work properly.

yep, i agree. I used to have green XNav, it was very nice. The door was a bit flimsy, but many cases are like that. Replace the fans with ULTRA QUIET ONEs, you will hear a mouse fart then.

Hmmm well for 125, I'm not gonna wanna buy another PSU! I thought, expensive case but hey it comes with a high wattage power supply... Bah.
Also, I don't want to be ripping apart a brand new case, maybe I should steer away, I like the tsunami that's also a cool case.

Its a bit loud, but only because I dont care about noise so much. I havent replaced the thermaltake fans with better fans yet, and needless to say, thermaltakes fans are never NOT NOISY. The case itself has great airflow, and with some better fans, it would be top notch.

Oh awesome, It's just now it comes to choosing a case there's so many to look at! I think the thermaltake Shark is great, but its pricey and its only got two wire meshes, no side window, the tsunami is really cool I don't imagine for a minute its AS loud as the X-Navigator, I could be wrong. I've got a bit more time, hopefully I can make my mind up before ordering the parts.
