Looking at the interior design of the Noblesse SE, I'd say either my case is not a GMC, or the SE is underengineered compared with mine! I did identify your case, but I edited my post late, so maybe you missed it. Your case is a Jeantech Noblesse JNN200 . Doesn’t look like it’s produced anymore...

Chances of finding a GMC supplier in the UK based on previous Noblesse SPCR forum threads? Slim to None :? Some Jeantech cases are rebadged GMC, and PC World sell Jeantech cases. *edit* Jeantech Nobless JNN200. Doesn’t look like it’s available anymore. http://www.primaccomputers.co.uk/cases.htm...

Someone is at last selling these in the UK:

Not cheap, but better late than never, however they may of missed the boat, because the new Thermalright Ultima-90 might just raise the bar for this class of cooler.

Stick with the sticks! The soft fan mounts/sticks, mount the fan away from the case, thereby isolating the fan from the case. If you also fit the pads/gaskets, they’ll either: a/ fill that gap between fan and case = less isolation, or b/ won’t fill the gap = having no effect whatsoever. Used by ...

Antec don’t make their own PSU’s, so likely TT are sourcing from the same supplier.
