Nice looking case. It's a little cramped for my taste but thats cause I like big cases. I'm hoping your going to use the LG drive you already have as they stopped making it. For the HDDs I would use two 5400rpm green drives to help cut down on heat in the case.

With the first case you have room for three 120mm fans, which means less noise. With the second one you have alittle more room a spot two 80mm fans and two 60mm fans. Trying to find a quiet 60mm would be hard. The two side 120mm fans plus the intake one should move enough air to keep things cool yet quiet.
