Silverstone based on the SFF and internal layout alone. Its a True Small Form Factor where as the Lian Li although Sexier is still a mini-Tower in my books.

ST

You can place a 3rd drive in 5.25 bay, I have Silverstone SG02B-F and love everything about it, especially its form factor.

I would prefer the Lian-Li, but I'm not big on SFF cases. I like to be able to fit lots of stuff and have room to work.

I still havn't decided what to put in it,

but here are my parts list.

inte g31 matx
2gb kingston
maybe ocz vendetta if case fits, if not I just run stock HSF
250IDE drive
P4 530J <--likely be replaced by a E6500/E8400
650W rosewill.


And I really do hate the push pins, I had one installed last night and got a few nasty scratches, I freaking hate these god damn push pins.

What I want is ultimate quiet operation, I don't even want to be able to hear a fly in the room

If someone knows a good or had experience with a good silence small case I would love to look into it.

Looking to spend somewhere in the $90s.

the antec p180 mini is supposed to be real quiet and also looks pretty good in my opinion though i've never actually owned one so i'm only speaking on reviews. case looks real nice though with tons of stuff for a 100$ case including sound dampening material on the side pannels and a 200 mm fan on the top that spins at low rpm's


out of the two you've mentioned my choice would be SS and a ltitle coin in your pocket, but only if you have a white dvd burner/blueray unit to go with it(or some paint)

I am going with the following


Newegg.ca - LIAN LI PC-A05NB Black Aluminum ATX Mini Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Newegg.ca - LIAN LI T-LM14B-2 Top Cover For Mid Tower - Case Accessories

Newegg is the shit, you request it they get it

I wonder, does that sugo case take standard ATX power supplies? Or would I be stuck with a small form factor psu? I have the itch to drasticly reduce the size of my pc to a little itty bitty one (been something ive been thinkin about '86) and would like to jam my HX750 into one.

A brief googling verified that this case will accept standard atx psus.
