I just built the Antec 300, used 1 front 120mm skythe fan and it is very cool an quite!!
My personal criteria when looking for a case.
1. No side panel fan...unnecessary and can disrupt proper case airflow.
2. No front panel fan...simply not necessary.
3. Large front panel air intake hole.
4. Ability to mount an exhaust fan under psu.
Stay away from cases that have no large front air intake. Proper case airflow means that cool air enters at the lower front of the case and warmed air exits at the top rear of the case.
That's all that needs to be accomplished and you don't need a crapload of fans to do it.

I just built the Antec 300, Man it's quite an cool!! I used the EVGA 8600 GTS graphics card. Alan
I got an Antec 300 for around $50 from NewEgg not long ago. For the price it's hard to beat. Biggest issue I had was that my video card (4870) interfered with 2 of the hard drive bays - but there were plenty of other bays for my RAID array to sit in.

i wish i hadn't gone for all the blue LCD lights. I like to leave my computer on sometimes at night, and it doesn't help me sleep.
