Before I decked it out; it was already quieter than my little Zallman case. I lend the acoustic suppression more to the solid build of the case rather than the insulated side panels... I insulated the entire case with doubled up silverstone acoustic foam, cut out all stamped fan grills and sealed/insulated unused openings/vents and set it upon a custom insulated mdf intake box/stand that I built.
I run a 1k watt psu, full atx, A10 6800 w/evo 212 cooler w/dual 120mm, 32gb ram, 1x R9 380, 4-5 hdd, 4 ssd, 1 dvdr, USB powered Focusrite audio interface (this is daw machine), 6 fans total...
It runs near silent even while gaming/running vsti for an hour plus; after tuning fans etc of course...
After eight years of building pc's; I found "the one"
I highly recommend this case. It is a big case but, stop fooling yourself... If you're building a custom PC then you want performance, silence and ease of maintenance/upgrades. This is it right here. Buy it.
The ventilation and sound dampening foam that the case use are excellent. I can barely tell my computer is on by the sound of it and my cpu and gpu temps seem about the same as my last gamer style case if not a few degrees cooler. I also really like the fan filters on the front and the bottom of the case. They are both easily removeable from the front and the one on the bottom covers the entire bottom ventilation and like the front filter is also very easy to put back after cleaning. Also the hole size on the filter seems perfect whereas it lets enough airflow through while being small enough to catch debris.
I really like that the door is swappable to open from either left or right and the moduvent system that they use for the top and side ventilation is a nice touch. It's nice that since I don't usually mount a side case fan anymore I don't have to have a big fan hole there if I don't want it.
The case was easy enough to work in and had excellent cable management options. There was ample room for everything and well placed cable holes and tie downs for everything you'll need.
There are a few other good features on this case as far as build options but the few negatives I wanted to point out are the lack of filters on the top and side vents. It you don't mount fans on these spots then you can use the moduvents to cover them but not having filters limits my use of them. Also I'm on the fence on the price I paid(~$150). It's a fantastic case and I'm happy with my purchase but I think the sweet spot for this case might have been lower. Maybe if they had included some magnetic filters for the top and sides as well as 1-2 more of the 140mm fans I would have felt better about but the price but in the end it's a high quality and full featured case that is easy to recommend for most builds.
I'm also not a fan of how 140mm fans installed at the top of the case leave a large (2.5") gap open to the right, sucking in dust and blasting sound out of the case. Big no-no if you like having internal case pressure or you actually care about how loud your system is. I ended up having to use a circular saw to cut the existing panels in order to cover it properly.
Those who plan to use the top radiator's full 420mm allowance should also know that (at least in my case), you must screw the radiator to the top of the case and the fans to the underside rather than vice versa. Doesn't fit the other way around, so plan accordingly.
As another viewer stated, you probably also want to buy quite a bit of Silverstone Acoustic material if you're after real silence. The supposed 'silence' of this case is mostly a gimmick unless you cover all of the non-essential exhaust holes. Any exhaust that doesn't have a fan on it should be covered.
Great case, despite all of those things. You could definitely do worse.
BIG caveat that I wish I had been aware of: The Fractal Design S is the same case, but with better watercooling options, no 3.5" / HDD cages, and alternative HDD mounting (3x 3.5" and 2x SSD). If you're going to do a full watercooling loop, save yourself some cash simultaneously and get the much more flexible and appropriate Define S instead.
