I'm excited about the Three Hundred, but I definitely don't want a noisy PC.
My current setup has a Sonata II.
I believe the noisiest thing is the video card under load.
My train of logic was that a system with four large fans spinning slowly can effectively and quietly cool my modest system, thus keeping the video card (and the entire system) quiet. Is my logic flawed? Please tell me.

Besides, filters always let the really fine dust through anyway.. and then you still gotta get in and clean that off which I normally find harder to do than the normal dust.
