Thanks for the response. The Solo is not currently available locally and I don't think it's a big enough cooling boost. It's a nice case but the cooling setup is basically the same as the SLK3000B and I would have to sacrifice either my optical drive or my card reader to keep the Kama Bay. Under two...

Choice for replacement case Antec 902 or CM 690 II Advanced?

My existing Antec SLK3000B is showing it's age housing a Phenom II X4 955 BE. Unfortunately I can't use a case with a door due to the case placement.

Can't speak for the standard fan in the P180 but the Nexus fans cool well with very little noise. I would tend to replace the stock heatsink myself, any decent tower heatsink coupled with a Nexus or Scythe fan is going to provide better cooling and lower noise.

If you are concerned about write induced failure why not write the Linux installation to CF and have the swap file on a cheapo 1GB USB thumb drive? When the thumb drive fails just have another handy to replace it.

Just a suggestion from the one who does not know!

The non-ultra fits fine in my case E4252 but I think that it may press on the damping foam I have on the side panel.

Shouldn't be any problem, anything less than 38mm thick or smaller than 120mm diameter should be fine. My exhaust fan is a 120mm diameter and 25 mm thick and still has clearance.

My experience with two early model 36GB Raptors is that you have to have a suspension mount before you can consider the 'seeks' to be quiet. It may be dimensions that effect the Silentmaxx enclosure as they seem to be a little deeper than some other drives I have seen?
