I have the CoolerMaster Silenco 500, I don't find it that quiet. It's not loud, but it's not quiet either. I think upgrading the fans to Noctuna would help, I have a Noctuna CPU cooler which has two 140mm fans which are dead silent.

The first one I got had a faulty power button, that took a while to diagnose!

I was about to recommend the CM Storm Scout, i have it personally. Its a great case!, silent, good cooling and the carry handle on the top is a bonus!

i never thought id use the handle but there has been the odd time where ive needed to take the pc to the lounge or whatever and its been great!
I didn't actually want the scout when i got it, i was after the HAF 912 advanced but they were out of stock and wern't expecting any more for another 2 weeks, me being the impatient person i am, i took 10mins and checked out what they had in stock and ordered the Scout. Im really pleased i got it, as soon as i opened the box i was impressed, the quality of the case is unbelievable. I don't regret one bit getting it and i reckon it looks better than the HAF series as well.

I keep the CIS (continuous ink system) for my printer on top of my PC. That's why I don't want a handle or a fan. I don't move my PC, if I did i'd have bought a laptop.

I have a friend selling a Coolermaster Cosmos, think he wants $350 for it... Well looked after and comes with original packaging etc. A huge case, looks real nice. PM me if you're interested...

Myself, a few months ago I upgraded to the NZXT Phantom which is quite nice, plenty of room and only around the $210 mark.

I've just recently purchased an NZXT source 210 Elite, was $90, not a huge case, quieter than my previous no name budget case I had beforehand.
Neat for cable tidy with space behind the motherboard tray, plenty of fan mounts, can take watercooling, black painted inside and out, understated styling which I find to be a big plus but comes down to personal choice.
