Cheaper price than normal, only dropped by a little bit but does look like a far more appealing price, had it sitting in my basket for 2 weeks, went ahead and bought it for my mid-range i5 6600k/GTX 970 rig, probably best to use your own silent fans on these as fans provided with cases tend to be a bit noisy compared to the likes of besilent or silent corsair fans. Very good reviews on Amazon, seems like a cheaper alternative to the Fractal Define series, comes with some great features and the 4 USB slots look very handy indeed.
Will post my thoughts on the case once it arrives.

UPDATE:
So the case has arrived, after ONE day, literally ordered it 16 hours ago, only selected the 'FREE DELIVERY' option as well and I don't have Amazon price, so that was a lovely surprise. First impression was definitely the size, it's wider than your standard PC case, but this leaves for more room on side panel where the wires go, it's very spacious inside, can easily work with a tri-sli setup since there's no HDD cages (they're inside the PSU shroud), that's another thing I love, it comes with a PSU shroud, which helps blockout some of the PSU noise as well. It comes with PLENTY of dust filters, I'm actually surprised as to how many they give with it, and most of them are magnetic, so they just slap on and off. Overall, very impressed with how much I got for my money, if you're going to get one, just be wary of the size and look at the dimensions before you get one, it's about 4cm wider than my old case (Aerocool)

Game Max Silent Gaming Case

Silent gaming case with soundproofing
Silent case with soundproofing for the gaming enthusiast who wants a Cool and Quiet rig - the built-in sound dampening matting will keep your system quiet and allow you to hear what you want to be hearing.

Comes with HD Audio, 2 x USB 2.0 & 2 x USB3.0. Super speed I/O Ports are located on the top of the front panel for easy access. Outstanding design, luxurious black colour with full mesh on front panel and top cover for high-end cooling. Rolled edges for safety, 2 tool-free HDD brackets allowing easy assembly, additional SSD on the back.

Magnetic removable top filter & PSU vent
Keep your system clean and crisp with ease with the magnetic removable top filter and the removable bottom filter for the PSU vent.

Interchangeable top panel sound proofing or mesh
Choose between the pre-installed solid panels with sound proofing, if quiet is your thing. Or replace this with the included single mesh panel if an extra cooling aid is more up your ally for your build.

Plentiful & handy connectivity with top card reader
With two Super Speed top USB 3.0 ports at your fingertips, connect your super speed devices with ease. Add in two front USB 2.0 ports and headphone & microphone ports and you can connect multiple devices with ease.

Meanwhile, the SD / Micro SD card reader allows you to connect most media storage devices.
Nice Fractal clone. Game Max are pretty good quality compared to other budget cases too.
Heat
Heated. Great price for a soundproofed case and full ATX size too so should be no bother with big graphics cards/coolers etc. Really tempting but spent far too much already this month....
That's a lot of case for the money, review well too
Shame I've had to downsize to mini itx as this case would be a steal
I have one of these....great value for money (I paid a couple of £'s more for mine) in my opinion. Cleary it's not silent as that depends on the components your have in it, and no case can kill 100% of the noise, but it's good quality, solid. I'll be buying another now that the price has dropped!

I figured, no case can truly be silent, but I hope this at least helps, I'll be fitting in bequiet silent wing fans, which are also attached to my cpu liquid cooler, and the GTX 970 Asus Strix fan barely ever comes on, it only comes on in 95%+ usage, so hoping that also helps.

Have you found it to be a decent case overall? Any problems that you can give me a heads up on? How does the sound proofing compare to a normal non sound proofed case?
bought for 10p more back in March:) great case but it's huge. I bought one of the dell power servers prior to this and in comparison this seems twice the size lol, I guess you get dimensions for info but still I was surprised when I saw the box. it's build quality is excellent though , plenty cable management options, ssd caddy, ended up with a nice tidy install. heat!

To a bat maybe but I doubt most humans can hear the electrons in the case spinning due to the noise of the fans. X)
You mention Corsair fans in your post OP, I personally find those far too loud.

Noctua or nothing at all.
So I selected FREE 3-5 day delivery, ordered last night at 7pm, and it arrived next day (today) at 2pm, not that I'm complaining!
Decent case but a bit too traditional for my liking. I wouldn't mind something like Streacom's DB4 which is completely fanless (though obviously it's alot more pricey):

Looks appealing, but can't help but thing the temps would get crazy high to be honest, haven't watched the video with sound since I'm at work, but wouldn't it still technically have fans due to the GPU coming with a fan attached?
Anyone know of any reason I would not be able to fit a VERY long graphics card (30-32cm) in this? I recently got an amazing deal on an R9 Fury at Amazon, it's this one: amazon.co.uk/gp/…5K/ but I couldn't believe how long and heavy it is. Despite having a full tower Coolermaster case, similar design to the CM690 II, the card is still too long. The case has drive bays in which stop me using anything like the full length. If I could remove the drive bays I could get it in for sure, but I can't see how (or even if) they come out? Kinda stupid design for a fairly high end case if they can't be removed.

Does this case permit you to use the full length (or most at least) to install graphics cards?

Thinking I might have to get one....

My case came in, and literally the whole case width wise can be used up just for a GPU, as there are no cages inside, the hard drive cages are in the psu shroud, not like a traditional case. According to the site: Max.VGA Card (Length) - 415mm and on the Amazon page for your GPU, the width of the card is 315mm, so you could fit the card in and still have 10cm to spare (on paper). I definitely think it will fit that GPU, it's also quite wide, so it will definitely fit width wise.

​ It's hard to say just how much quieter this would be when compared to another case as I've only ever had the one setup in it, but it's a solid & roomy. It's my only non-watercooled case, and I'm sure it's only marginally louder than the others with an older build in it. I'd say go for it....I'm just about to again!

Ok, thanks. I take it you got the black one? Anyone know if there is any difference between the black and white cases besides appearance? I know it's a bit dearer but I really like the look of it in white. Been many years since I've had a white PC case, not especially fussy about appearance but I do like the look of the white one, hmm decisions....

Also anyone have any recommendations for a decent but cheap fan or two to put in this? I know it comes with one, but I like at least two in any PC case so there is a clear airflow path from front to back, especially as we enter the scorching British summer time

If you have an old PC case, just take the fans from there and stick them in to this case, that's what I'm going to do, but if you want decent quiet pc fans, you may have to throw a bit more dosh at your set up. As for the white version, it's exactly the same, just white, so it's just aesthetics.
