If you're talking about the NZXT Phantom, It's very quiet. Like I said, from a couple feet away, it's inaudible when the fans are turned down to their lowest setting on the fan controller (assuming your CPU and PSU fans are the same way). The case panels are thick enough that they don't produce a lot of vibration or extraneous noise. It makes the system extremely quiet.

Seems a very big case though. Not sure it will fit under my desk, got my current case on a little stroller so I can easily move it out of the way.

It is big. That's the reason I suggested that Lian-Li case earlier. The NZXT Phantom is a full size case, while the Lian-Li Armorsuit P50 is a mid-tower. If you trying to do that, the Lian-Li case will be better for your purpose.

Could you link each of those cases, so I know what you're talking about?

Lian-Li are pretty sweet, but expensive. Nice if you have the money to spend.

Right now, I'm considering either one of these:
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...25&ss_index=62
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...25&ss_index=62
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product...25&ss_index=62
and possibly the Silverstone FT02, but this is a little out of my price range

Mind: main reason is getting enough cold air inside the case to keep my GTX750 from being the loudest part of my case under load, while not increasing the overall fan noise.

I think the armorsuit would be the best fit, I think. It looks to be a fantastic case with excellent air flow.

Bear in mind, you may have to change out some of the fans to make it very quiet. Be willing to spend some money for quiet and efficient fans.

Well, I got my 570 GTX with the Twin Frozr 2 on it, and its awesome. Quiet and stays cool all the time. At its peak, when playing games, the highest I've seen it was 53C, and the highest I've ever seen the fan was 44%, and even at that its quieter than my case fans, which are only 120mm low speed quiet fans. I cranked them up to 100% just to see how loud they got and even then they aren't very loud, certainly far quieter than the 285 I replaced, even when it was running at 70%.

Edit: Oh yeah, its stock overclocked pretty well too, 786 core, 1572 shaders, 4100 mem. Still quiet despite the good overclock.

I don't have any pics but its this case:

http://www.istarusa.com/istarusa/pro...model=S-10000L

Its a giant open server-type case, I have a 120mm intake fan from the side blowing across the PCI-E slots, a pair of 120mm fans in the front intake and one 120mm exhast fan.

Ninja Prime's case has very good air flow. You need a case with good air flow, and that should fix your noise/heat issues. Ninja's case is huge (E-ATX) but the airflow allows his components to remain very cool and quiet.

I'm telling you, those Lian-Li cases are your best bet. They're not flashy, they offer a great set of features, and most importantly, they keep your stuff cool.
