What do you think of the 300? Is it as quiet as the 900?
I am considering it for the downstairs Stereo System.
I have a Tt Soprano there now but I'm tired of it already!

My 900 is strictly for my gaming rig. The CPU and Video card are both overclocked. I run all 6 fans on high, so it's pretty loud.

The 300 only has a 120mm rear and 140mm top fan, and even on high, it's fairly quiet... MUCH quieter than the 900. I'm not sure how quiet it will be when I add another pair of fans in the front to aid in airflow.

So the 300 could use some added airflow!?!
Are you going to use the Antec TriCool fans?
I added one to my 900 and definitely like it but, they are pricey! I caught it on sale and it was still $18(shipped)
I'm running my 900 fans on low and you can hardly hear the fans at all.

I haven't given a full on test of the 300 yet with a full system installed in it. With my piece together system, it ran a little warmer than my 900, but I don't think any of the temps were ridiculous, but since the fan housings are there for drop in installation, it only makes sense to throw in a pair and see if it cools it down.

thinking of the Scythe S-Flex E fans. http://www.jab-tech.com/Scythe-S-Flex-F ... -3256.html

$13 each with quantity discount at Jab-Tech. Silent PC ranked them #2 behind the Noctua for quiet performance, but I can't afford $20 each for the Noctua's.
