Quiet Cases?

I'm sure some of you know waaaaay more about which cases are quiet, if not virtually silent, so I'm seeing what everyone recommends. I'm thinking of making a cheapo home server. If you wanna recommend parts too, that'd be great.

Wish I had decided to do this a year ago when HDD prices weren't horrible. They are still about $40 more than I'd want to pay.

Yeah, I'm liking it so far. I might get that one.

Since I'm building a small home server, anyone have any recommendations for a MB and CPU?

Realistically, I'll be looking to build this bad boy in September when I get back from my summer field assignments, but until then I'd like to do some research....

really nice case, x3 fans (top, front, back) and very quiet. also has a sweet handle on top of it for lugging it about, for lan gaming etc. very good server case

as for the home server, how powerful do you want? i5 would do the job tbh

kind of surprised you guys all use mid tower cases. i used to have one (antec 900), and it did the job, but parts were pretty snug in there and hard to cable manage without drilling extra holes. switched over to a full tower antec 1200 a couple years ago and like it a lot better.

I've still got the 900. And yeah mid towers are always a little crampy.
