Hi there!
Too many Full Tower cases can be found on market, but I wish ask You advice before spend grands for new PC.
There my own req.
1. Needs to be ALL quiet n isolated by rubber! Like I had old case, rubber isolations for screws (washers) where installed noisy parts -HDD, -motherboard, floppy, CD/DVD-drive, Power Supplies. All this parts needs to be screwed separately(with rubber washers), NON-direct-contact with case at all. Some small situation can do my self UPDATE as improvisation or buying enough cheap case updates but with fine quality of course.

2. Flow of fan, front in, back side out - turbine idea. No side or upside open area(if You have better ideas - let me know about it).
2.2 if will be needed upside or side to be opened (for temperature overheats) ill simply remove side lids. ^^

Will be great if have any good noisy isolated cases

Oh... my choose left behind
AMD -->, AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8150 Black Edition 3.60Ghz (Socket AM3+) and graphic card Radeon HD 7970 with PCI-Express 3.0
Have better ideas? - tell me please.
HDD 1st SSD with good write n read ability. Never had SSD but wish to try it.

Many thanks for future recommendations

Firstly,
Have you already bought the FX-8150?

Do you mean to say you want a quiet-oriented case, or just a case with rubber mounts?

Full tower too? 'quiet' cases are smaller size.

How much have you got to spend?

Didn't bought yet FX-8150, strange prices for them, trying now find out what wrong with it

quiet-oriented case, in practice all about quiet is rubbers, in my opinion.
Most noise coming from vibrating n other parts contact with vibrating source. HDD+case holder+tower, CD/DVD+case+tower(cd+tower direct connect).
If isolate all parts even motherboard from direct contact with tower will be nice surprise - quiet. Of course quiet fans with normal speed, not on max rpm.

Full tower yes, needs to be for last graphic cards as it's needs space.

A spend... if reasonable could be over 100

Hell, you could even buy Sandy rather than Bulldozer...

It's actually quite hard to think of full tower cases for Less than £100.

The case that came to mind when you said big and quiet was the Fractal Define Design XL.

Get the fractal r3 or the corsair 550d they're both better than the silencio.

Many thanks, then corsair 550d looks "is strictly". More than happy

I was read couple German customer Reviews, they rated it 1/5.
Unhappy with lid quality, shaky(unacceptable).
Not all places made from plastic... word from me: but plastic is good conductor of vibration ^^
Outside finish matt like, used worth word "sandpaper-like" ^^

Anyway, my plan still on this caGe. All other thinks can do my self, even spend 2 weeks for planing good isolations.
