I am looking for a full size quiet Tower case with no clear sides.
I will be using the computer next to some Ham Radio Equipment
and don't want to take a chance with EMI escaping the case
through the clear side.
Interested in a case with some internal elbow room.
Appearance is not an issue.

thanks,
inobey

Full Tower, or mid tower?

For mid tower I recommend the Antec SLK3000-B, it's actually quieter than the Sonata when paired with a good PSU.

If you don't like the cooling holes in the chassis that the SLK3000-B comes with Antec makes the SLK3700AMB, and the SLK3700BQE, which don't have the holes and are preferred over the Sonata.


Full towers: There are no real full towers that I can think of, that I would call quiet, you could get one of Antec's full towers pretty quiet when paired up with some temperature controlled fans, but there are none that you enter the really quiet realm.

I think of the dragon cases when I hear full tower. That's what this Chenming case is.

Blue and charcoal are available if you're interested in a different color.
