    Hi everyone,

    I have finished putting together a media computer build that I hope is as cool and quiet as possible:

    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA785GPM-UD2H
    CPU: Athlon II x2 240
    HDD: 1.5TB WD Eco Green, partitioned for OS
    OS: Windows 7 using MCE
    PSU: Corsair 450VX
    CPU Cooler (only if needed): Scythe Orochi
    TV Tuner Card: Black Gold BGT3595 (when release next month)
    RAM: 2x2GB Corsair DDR800
    Optical Drive: LG BluRAy Player

    All I have left to do is choose a case. I like the idea of the Remote Fusion Remote Max for its good reviews for low noise but have heard that the Silverstone SST-LC16M is an even better case - though quite expensive!

    Can anyone vouch for either of these cases or suggest a better alternative?

    Your help would be very much appreciated.

    Here are some ideas...............
    Try to avoid the microatx cases.
    You really want something that can handle a full size atx power
    supply to make sure you meet the power requirements for the
    Other than that,it's really a matter of personal preference.

    Think the silverstone is expensive?
    Look at this......
