pretty much what the topic says silent chassi suggestion needed..
my current chassi isn't exactly the most quiet one there is, it deals with heat good enough but its also pretty loud. so a decent chassi that dont overheat and is quiet that don't cost a arm and a leg is what i am looking for. so yeah any suggestion is welcome.

Do you know what exactly is making the most noise? If it's exhaust fans those are difficult to quiet. You almost need to replace them with a super quiet model. Same with PS fans.

If it's cpu or gpu fans, some of that sound dampening insulation can be installed inside the case anywhere there's a place to put some that won't block circulation. That can help a bit.

We used to see people use those cans of air directly on the fans to remove dust but they rev'd them up so fast they damaged them in the process.

There's two major noise maker in pc cases and it's all related to time, as screws lose grip and fans start squeaking

The cheapest way is to fix it (if possible)

Cuz cheap tend to depend on your wallet/bank account size

You can buy padding that you can put into the system to help lower the noise. I would advise to change all you fans on your system to. Also your CPU fan if you are not water cooling. Oh if you dont really want to get rid of your case. Then replace all the screws.

Maximum PC did a built a couple of years ago where they tried to make a super silent computer. While technology has changed some, it is still good reading as a reference. After they built the rig, they tested it against a "Normal Build." Here is a link to the article on their website: Link
