    I'm gonna be building a new PC soon and I want it to be as cool and quiet as possible. I've had some help on the spec, but now the case is bugging me.

    I was going to get an akasa sonata II, but somebody has now mentioned the ThermalTake (Thermaltake VB5001SNA Tai-Chi SuperMidi Tower - Aluminium (CA-003-TT)) case with built in water cooling...

    Would the ThermalTake case be quieter than the Akasa with low noise fans, and is the included water cooling system easy to hook up as I'm a total novice when it comes to water cooling...

    Some confusion perhaps -

    My preference would be;

    1. Akasa Eclipse + 2 x 120mm Akasa Ambers
    2. Antec Sonata
    3. Coolermaster 530/531
    3. Jeantech Phong

    The watercooling kit in the Thermaltake is not really any better than the best air coolers - so why bother? It's a gimmick rather than a properly designed solution.
