My System Specs

Looks pretty good, how is it for noise with the fans at full speed?
And of course, how is cooling, especially for the GPU? Although I don't know how hot the GTX 260 gets.

Thanks.

I was planning on replacing the fans with Noctua fans from my old case, but decided against that since the noise level is not too different from what I had before with NH U12P. The GPU runs between 32 and 40 deg. Celsius - again not too different from what I had previously. I can still get the fans to slow down more from the Hardware Monitor but decided there is no need to. This is one very classy case and so far, it has met my expectation. I find though that you can get a cleaner wire management with a modular Power Supply.
