Default upgrade form antec 300

Hi everyone,

i know a lot of you know much more about case than me... so that why i ask the question..

First, that my hardware

Ex58-UD5
i7 920 stock hs(back to stock for now)
6gb dominator
evga gtx260 55nm
tx750
samsung dvd burner
wd caviar black 640 x1 now (i think i will upgrade to 3 soon)
antec 300 moded

mod to the 300:
removing the hd holder
add lian li hd holder il drive bay
hole for cable management
hole to remove water block without removing the mobo
add 2 120mm yateloon on front(1350rpm)
and noctua p12 on side(1300rpm)

bolt antec tricool are at low

The problem: I hate this case, it sound like washroom, i remove all my water cooling stuff to have a quiter case(mcp350 is too loud for me), i still way to buy a noctua 1366se edition(back order on ncix) but i think i need a bether case

Than was my option for the moment

1: Zoob have an mountain mod twice7 for sale in her FS thread(for a long time i want to try a mountain mod), but i have 2 question about this case, anyone know if tower style hs will fit in this case? does mountain mod are quite?(with the right fan)

2: Lian li pc-A05NB, i can find a BNIB one for 90$ on egg, but the only thing i know about this case is i need to mod the top to have bether airflow

3: Another option?

What i want:
Small case
Light
quiet
with a windows is bether, but i can mod it
can fit tower style HS or 120.2 rad

you have a question to help me more? feel free to post in the thread
