My system is used in a home studio, it's doing about 26dB@1M (ambient is around 22dB) and under a desk. I'm just saying, some people consider the top exhausts as a point for noise to escape.

In any case good notes and thank you for the member review. I like the P280 a lot.

You could always just snag some sound deadening material and do it yourself.

I'm torn between what case I'd like next to replace my Antec 900, I'm leaning towards something like this or one of the similar Fractal Designs.

Here is a finish up job

cut out the rear stamped case grille openings so its completely open now less restriction

Rear case exhaust fan nf p12 moved to outside of cabinet so as to not interfere with the 3rd cpu cooler fan.
chrome grille to suit added on fan face.
fan wiring through rubber cooling grommet in rear to chassis connection
interior snap in drive bays have 2 fans and behind air filter has 2 fans models nf p12's bringing air in.
P14flx fan on top held with small washers & fan screws through them, centered in place
held by 2 screws diagonally
