According to specs, the fan I chose moves more air, and is considerably quieter.

... though, I do get the feeling the companies measure differently, and therefore get different results.

I don't need a silent case... just preferably something fairly quiet. As long as I don't have an airplane propeller in my case, I'm happy. I'm more interested in performance.

Yeah, I will get it from ClubIT.

... and unless there is a specific reason you don't think I should go with my case, I think I'll like it. Seems to be perfect for me.

well if you got the money, go with the antec 900 or antech p180-2.
Those case's have good reviews and a lot of people have them and have had no problems.

Hmm, how can I tell if the PSU will fit in the case? It says it is a EPS12V? I've never heard of that format.
