For a silent PC, the most important thing are the fans (BeQuiet and Noctua are both solid bets). You also want to have software based control (e.g. via motherboard).
Building: The case helps in that it is spacious, has a great cable management, and comes with a manual easy to understand
Materials: heavy, solid built case. Front door is a bit plasticky, but still sturdy. You can change the direction it opens, and it does reduce the noise coming from the interior.
Cooling: l have reduced the CPU temperatures in 8º to 10º (front door close) compared to previous 'open' case. The larger space for air to circulate and 140mm fans make a difference.
Noise (please note l wanted a silent PC, not just a quiet one): if your system is not quiet, the case won't do miracles. You'll always cut down more noise installing quality fans, than buying this case.
Stock fans: they're ok. They move a good quantity of air, and don't get loud at max. speed. For the back fan, l had to install a 'low noise adaptor', otherwise the system was less quiet than the previous one. l bought a Noctua NF-A14 to put it on the back.
Fan controller: it works as expected and it's super easy to install. Problem is fans spin too fast even at min. speed (which doesn't help cutting down noise). l'd use motherboard control instead.
- rubber grommets to prevent vibrations from HDDs and power supply
- Dust filters: one for the entire bottom surface, easily removed from the front; another for the front intake (easily removeable).
- Unfortunately, no dust filters for side panel or top panels ('ModuVent')
