Anyone try an NZXT case?

Enclosures and acoustic damping to help quiet them.

Anyone try an NZXT case?

I had a chance in passing to see an S430 case and I have to say I was astounded at the physical quality, especially at under a C-note. Far less flimsy than Corsair or Fractal. Nice compact proportions (for an ATX case). Not sure how well it would work for a quiet build. The only air-inlet apertures for up to two intake fans are at the top and bottom of the front panel, but they are relatively generous. The top vent might need to be blocked off. Depends how much noise is being generated inside to begin with I guess.

Dont I feel foolish now. :)

(sadly a google search for reviews doesn't bring up SPCR until the 5th page)

:) if you add SPCR to the search, it'll be the first result.
