      Those fans look...noisy to say the least.

        Typically larger fans are quieter than the standard 80mm fan. Since they are larger they spin at a lower RPM to move the same volume of air so you get less "swirls" at the tips.

            I really like the case design. Mucho air flow.

              Yeh the fans are actually very quite, my fans on my old computer the 80mm fans made tons more noise. In my opinion and others that I've heard from, the Xclio case is over looked alot, for 129.00 bucks it's a steal. My temps are 24-25*c

              They also have a control to change the speeds of the fans, but I always keep it on high, dont even notice them running.

                Two 120mm fans are going to suck in huge amounts of dust though, get a can of compressed air and give the inside a dust occasionally.

                  Maybe frequently instead of occasionally. Those are 25cm fans, not 12cm. :D

                    Nice, should be cool enough though, what kind of rpm would you expect from 25cm?

                    My 120mm ones spin at about 1200 - 1300rpm, nice and quiet too.

                      If you're worried about dust, pick up some duster and just spray it down every month.

                              Like I said in an earlier post, ended up building a similar PC. (sorry if I'm hijacking!)

                              Memory: Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
                              VideoCard: Nvidia 8800gts 640ram
                              HDs: WD 150GB Raptor, Seagate 500GB 16MB SATA-300 HDD
                              Motherboard: ASUS P5KC
                              CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Processor - 3.0GHz, 4MB Cache, 1333MHz FSB
                              Power supply: 700 Watt XVS Modular Power Supply
                              Case: Ultra Grid ATX Mid-Tower Case
                              Monitor: Samsung 226BW 22" Widescreen LCD

                              It's been so long since since I have gamed with a good pc, I love it (my previous was 5+ years old, obviously lots replaced over the years haha). So far been running for 1.5 weeks without a hitch, the build went smoother then I anticipated.

                              I hope to make my comeback to the TG servers in a game or two soon (been over 2 years since I played games here regularly).

                              Here is a couple pics I jammed into 1 of my setup (4.6MB, you have been warned 56ks) http://polska.laggers.ca/img/pcpics.jpg. I gotta say, I was not expecting the 8800 to be the beast (in terms of size) that it is haha.

                              PS - The motherboard must have the worst possible location for the IDE Connector (bottom left of the mobo), not that I have any ide devices atm.
