Does my HAF X make noise? Of course, any computer will, even ones sound-proofed.
However, whenever I got to my bud's house, who has an old LGA775 system with an MSI GTX 460 Cyclone, all housed in a CM 690... holy hell. There's a shocking difference in noise.
Don't get me started on what it sounds like if he starts to use the GPU AT ALL.
His computer is easily 5x as loud as mine - at idle. At load? 10x or more as loud.

At least they make places warm. Wish my dad would let me use the one down here in my basement. Gah. >_< Especially now that it is winter. Chicago area and the windows down here are fire escape windows aka not sealed/insulated. =S
