    I'm looking for a new case. My concerns are quietness, durability and cost effective. I'm looking to try to keep it in the $100-200 range, but will go further if necessary.

    The three cases I've come up with thus far happen to be Lian-Li cases:

    This one is the cheapest of them. It has sound deadening material and foam around the 5 1/4" slots to help with vibrations. Also has a CPU vent. Seems like a good case and should be quiet.
    1 x 120mm, 3 x 80mm case fans

    I like this case I guess. But for $15 more I see no reason to get the case listed below.

    Seems like it has better airflow, better build and sound deadener. Seems like a great case even though it's actually less expensive (w/o rebates) as the top case.


    What do you guys think? Any other case recommendations?

    the PC-6070 is very quiet. Cooling is decent, not great, but acceptable.

    I would also recommend the Silverstone TJ-02 or TJ-04 with a layer of Peel&Seal (parts cost of around $20 at Lowes)

    If you are concerned about quiet, go with the PC-6070 as jolly said... out of the ones you listed, that's likely to be the most quiet of them.
