I'll try to report back once UPS drops this guy off.

It should be pretty quiet since it will have 2 x 120mm fans rated at 22dba and the 2 in the window are 20dba fans.

Antec Sonata III is inexpensive and comes with a 120mm fan with 3 speed control switch. This is a quiet case until the 8600GTS graphics card fan runs. You can't control the speed of this and probaly not a good idea anyway. I guess my point is the case can be quiet, but other things also can be considered.

You and me both, I'd have to imagine someone would have learned from past mistakes though. I'd be pretty pissed if anything was scratched in the case as well. I was actually more concerned about what they did with the old fan bracket and window mesh. I'm not sure if they are just going to leave both of those out or if they include that inside of the case as well.

I hope they've learned their lesson... my case cost over $320 and that was before shipping

I didn't even send it back because it would have cost me at least another $40.

Thats an Antec P182 so it has amazing cable management as long as your PSU has long enough cords (mind didn't ). You can rout all the cables behind the mobo tray. I'll take a few pics.

Saddly with the psu on the bottem and the cables needing to reach rather high on the mobo (the cpu power cable all the way in the left corner is a super PITA), as well as the cdrom and the 2 case fans, you cant do much about it.

It dosnt have a window so why do you care?
