    I have this case for a year and an half now.
    The integrated power supply is crap, too noisy.

    I decided to change it but it’s very very hard to find a silent power supply of that size (micro ATX if I’m correct)
    So I went for an external fanless power supply.
    my case has a Intel I3 (1st Gen), a gygabyte MB (can’t remember the model) and a nvidia GT430 (low profile & fanless)
    I used a big shuriken for the CPU fan plus a 80mm fan that extract the air from the bottom of the case.

    I don’t do any games at all.

    The case is now extremely silent.

    I still think it’s one of the best looking case but going for a low profile case is a pain in the ass. very difficult to find the right combination of component for proper cooling.

    I’d definitely recommend you to buy a motherboard with integrated graphics. So you can put an extra fan on the back (I can’t anymore, because of my GT430)

    also get an external fanless power supply (180w is more than enough).
