The reason I say that is I have yet to find any OEM fan that was good enough for my systems. I always yank em and throw them away and replace with FDB (or the equivalent) long life, quiet fans. So why spend moeny on eqipment that is just going to be chucked? IMHO better to have a better built case.

Guess its all in how you look at it and your own personal priorities. :)

To this I do agree.

I cannot name a build YET that I have kept the stock fans on. Period.

Every single case I order is ordered with Fan's of my choosing. Not to say the Manu's don't make good fans, its just they don't make fans that do what I want them to do.

So I'm with AkG here. Build me cases with NO fans, and put the $$$ into the design and materials there.
I bet you would be suprised at how many people would go this route.
