I am looking for a quiet, mid ATX case for my new build. I do not think I can go smaller than a mid ATX nor would I want to due to reduced air flow.
At this time, I am not planning on a radiator / water cooling system, however, I may want one in a few years.
I am interested in a quiet case like the Fractal Design Define S, but I need a 5.25" bay for a dvd burner drive. I would prefer the Define S over the Define R5. I also like the Corsair Vengeance C70 and Phanteks Enthoo Pro M, but they do not have the sound dampening qualities of the Fractal Design Define S.
If I do not plan to use the dvd burner often, would you suggest I purchase the Define S and use an external dvd burner?
