RE: Low-No Noise Cases
Thermalright TY-140 is the best. It only supports 120mm mounting holes so you may need an adapter.

Also, as a side note, I'm also very concerned about noise, so I understand where you're coming from, but I just resort to keeping my case fans off most of the time.

Would you recommend then to go with the TY-140 along with an adapter, or would this fan, or another, be more cost effective?

I just placed an order for a 6 channel fan controller, so I assume that is more important than the actual case fans then? Also in your opinion, the XL has an optional side mount for added cooling for the video card, is this beneficial to take advantage of, or would it be better to leave the mount covered with isolation material instead? Will the potentially added cooling be worth it? And if you believe that mount would be unnecessary, as I already purchased 2 120mm fans (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6835553001), do you believe it would be more worthwhile to just purchase a 120mm-140mm adapter to fit that fan, or would you still recommend the TY-140 more?
