    I've got the 450D as my current case. It's an OK case, I certainly wouldn't describe it as quiet though, especially with the included fans.

    I like the look of the Raijintek out of the options you've given.

    I've got a meshify. The fact it's rather open means I'd not necessarily be classing it as a silent case, but with a good fan setup, it keeps everything cool enough to basically run at silent when just browsing etc. Stock cooler on the 2600 might make it trickier, they can keep them cool, but hit high revs, which can get noisy (at least that's my experience of the 2700x).

    I'd recommend losing the stock fans that come with the case though, they aren't strong enough to overcome the mesh at the front. Buy a twin pack of the phanteks 140MP from overclockers (£16ish), put them at the front, and that should get you laughing. I've put on of the stock fans on relatively low revs (spins up when needed), at the back, to try and smoothen the flow from my tower cpu cooler to the outside of the case.
