I chose the Antec Overture case which fits into my media cupboard but also takes a full ATX M/B with 5 PCI slots.
The power supply and case fans as supplied are very quiet. I originally fitted the standard Intel Pentium4 Prescott 3.06 and cooler. However this is too noisy for the lounge so I have removed the fan and cooler and installed a Zalman AL-CU quiet cooler and am now very happy with the noise level.
