Default What is the most Silent computer case money can buy?

Hey guys I was looking at the Antec P182 case and it seems like it is a very good option if you want a case that is very quiet..... does anyone know how it compares to the noise output to an Antec 900? Or can anyone recommend me another case that is even better than the 182?

Thanks!

That is a great case^^^ but if you dont want to spend 700$, which you probably dont then get this -
Newegg.com - Antec Performance One P180 Silver cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
the only difference betweent the 182 and the 180 is the color...so dont spend more on just the color.

Haha, you'd pay $500 more so it LOOKS cooler?

Just use silent fans/psus/heatsinkfans and I'm sure it will be quiet regardless of the case you use.

the metal makes it pretty quite. but you can get some sound absorbant liner and throw that inside the case, itll make the general case temp a little hotter, so make sure everything is cooled nicely and you have good airflow going through the case.

This case has been getting pretty good reviews and is MUCH cheaper.
