Some follow good practises.

You mount a fan behind that, sure it exhausts some, but its noisy to.
And thats why.
Over the years I have had to neatly remake them and install chrome grilles.
So I use Antecs now.
But to each his own.
You can often pickup some pretty good deals on slighly used Antec models as people upgrade to new ones.
My new case is on the way I decided to go with the Antec P182 performance one. The price was a determining factor I have read many reviews and everyone has been very pleased with the features. I really like the dense side panels used for noise suppression and pretty much every area of the case either has foam strips or silicon groments for anti-vibration of fans and hdds. I am really looking forward to the install I can't wait to rid my case of all those wires and hide them behind the motheboard now that I have proper case to do it with.
Check out direct canada there's a wide selection and if you're lucky shipping is only $9.99 Purolator ground.
