the Cooler Master will because it has a 120mm fan and the front is steel mesh.

eh...Coolar Master i guess, it has a 120 fan on the back, they tend to move more air and be relatively quieter...

That cooler master is cool. I've been goggling over it for a few days. I can't afford it though, so I need to dream elsewhere. That's definately the one I'd pick
