Finally,,,, my computer case has arrived. After having to order it a second time (first one got lost somewhere between Industry, CA and me (El Cajon, CA) about 140-150 miles. Must say it is nice, but might could sound like a freight train to. It has 4 120mm cooling fans. I noticed in this one that the HDD's are mounted vertically (on their sides) instead of horizontal, and the entire area where they mount is removable too. In case anyone wants to check it out it is a Raidmax Iceberg ATX-012WS. Start building tomorrow.

Possibly 4 x 120mm fans should be fairly quiet if they are reasonable quality fans. Larger fans can spin slower, therefore less noise.

I haven't worked with that case but I suspect the fan noise shouldn't be an issue.  I've got 3 x 120 mm fans plus a 200 mm fan in my case and they're actually pretty good.  The biggest noise emanates from my HSF and that's mostly because of the open grated area on top of my case.  As long as those fans are of good quality as Sunrat said, you shouldn't have a problem.  Sometimes those fans come with a speed controller so you can adjust the speed.

:clap: B) :thumbsup:   Well ..  step 1,2 and 3 are done... New computer is built, 1st OS is installed and working, all mainboard chipset drivers are installed. Step 4, 5 and beyond, start the install of Linux OS's.As for the  fans, I am IMPRESSED, these are more quiet than the 2 80MM in my old box, AND, they are a purdy blue color.
