Finally ready to pull the trigger on this but have a few questions.

Does anyone have a the S14v case from OriginAE? I'm concerned about the noise from the twin 60mm fans. Are these noisy?

Could I get away with not using these fans? I was hoping I could just use the mini-ninja CPU fan to blow towards the back of the case. Workable?

I already have an Nvidia 8600GTS with a Zalman cooler on it so thats one fan.

E8600 CPU with the Scythe Mini Ninja

I am also 99% sure I'm buying the Nexus Value 430 PSU

Comments and suggestions? :D

I have a S10V case which uses 4 of the 60mm fans. The fans are virtually silent even at full RPM. You might be able to get away with not using the 60mm exhaust fans but I don't think you are going to run into a noise issue using them.

    I've got an S14V and the fans are near silent. In total there are 5 fans running: 2 Origenae exhaust fans, Origenae HDD fan, the power supply fan, the CPU fan on a Ninja Mini, and frankly my blu-ray drive is louder than any of them.

    I have the silverstone GD07B and I really like it. No front memory card reader. It takes 2x front 5.25" and a lot of 3.5" drives. The only bad point is the bottom mounted filter is a HUGE pain to remove for cleaning.

    At daylight the contrast and the "blackness" of black isn't the best compared to the plasma, but I think thats obvious. But at night, at full light; boy, the colors are stunning :) Before I bought my projector I wasn't sure if I'll buy an 3D LCD LED 46" from Samsung or the said Projector, but I'm glad I've chosen the projector...
