Default Antec Sonata II Silent ATX Case

The Sonata II is a worthy upgrade to the original Sonata and anyone in the market for a new case should take a good look at it - whether or not they're building a silent system. The Sonata II offers near silent operation in a package so attractive you'll want to show it off every chance you get. It's a good thing the Sonata II can be locked up. Otherwise your friends might take too much of a shining to it.

Again, just talk and no temp or sound measurement for something that is supposed to be quiet and the Advanced Chassis air Duct remains untested.

My own experience using one for 3 weeks found the air duct even with fans installed is worthless; it increase CPU temp and did not decrease graphic card GPU temp although the ambient temp has a lower reported temp according to ATI temp sensors.

Many people overlook the design of a fan duct, thinking any round pipe or vent will do the job. This is the 4th review I read without any test done to the case.
