My pick would be CM690

it's SLI certified cabinet with 3 more fan slots when compared to Gladiator 600

guys.. how is the noise level of the same..
i always wanted to have a noise proof cabinet...
Is CM 340/341... good as well for that? Coz i understand that CM 690 is expensive and has the buttons and USB ports on top. But i am one of those ppl who use my cpu also as a mini table.

Always envy the dell/HP desktops which remain silent.

@popularbhaskar, looks like you might need a thermal paste. Monitor your CPU temperatures using everest or speedfan. Should be below 45 when idle and less than 60 when on load

Also.. my fan on cpu is sounding like a propellar. Is that normal for a AMD 7750 BE cpu?


Please take of the heat sink assembly and give a good clean up to the metal plates, and the fan. Believe me..even my old system..used to sound loud..once I cleaned the heat sink assembly it was really quite...

The way I cleaned it...was took a small brush..and rubbed it around..the metal..and fan fins. Also blew into the assembly really hard..couple of times. Do it outside your house..it raises a lot of dust.........!

Make sure you re-apply thermal paste, when you reseat the heat sink.

@Asigh
the problem in my case is the processor is a week old and i noticed the painful noise the moment i put the new proc and fan on.. i verified if the seating is good and it is.

CM690 looks better to me (bcoz i have cm334 :lol:),
CM 690 has 1blue front fan, 1 rear fan, optional top fan, 1 side fan, 1 optional so if you put those.. it bound to be loudy...\ it cant be silent.. consider this.. even if with standard 4 fans you have 6fans runing. it will be loudly. ( 4 cabinet + 1cpu fan + 1 smps = 6fans)

My CM 334.. and it looks identical, just a bit smaller. its awesome looking cabinet. even better than it appear on website. I have just one 120mm fan installed so its very very silent. I was thinking about putting one more but the silence is stopping me. ;)

I have all the fans loaded on my CM690. (1xDrive bays, 1xleft panel,1xbottom chassis, 1xback chassis, 2xtop chassis)...honestly..it is not that loud...+ I also have one PSU+one CPU+one GPU..total = 9 fans...!

The whole thing..makes a HMMMMMMMMM..sound...so it is not absolutely silent (I can tell something is on)..but it is quite enough to sleep and have it running in the background...!
