My System Specs


Okay so after having discussed this with my girlfriend apparently I need to get an ultra quiet case. I was looking at the fractal r3 and the NZXT H2, does anyone know a better case for around the same price with better cooling possibly? I am going to be overclocking so I need something with good airflow.

I don't really like the r3 or h2 so I'd rather find something else.

Fractal R3 has good airflow if you remove some of the extra panels to let more air in. Then if you hook up a fan controller to it it can be quite quiet.

Alternatively, go for something like the PCv152 Lian Li because it's small, and get watercooling for it to make it quiet
