Not everyone of us like loud noises coming from our PC, which is why Antec has come up with the Sonata Elite that won’t raise the ire of any librarian despite being able to hold seven hard drives as well as an equal number of expansion slots within its two-layer steel design with a plastic side and top panels. Silicone grommets are used to reduce vibration by a noticeable amount, while a couple of 120mm fans won’t spin like mad, developing a similar amount of airflow compared to smaller blades that do so at higher and louder speeds. Cleaning is a snap with removable and washable filters. The Sonata Elite case will support Mini-ITX, MicroATX and standard ATX motherboards, including a couple of front-mounted USB, one eSATA and HD-compatible audio in and out ports. You get a split of three 5.25″ and four 3.5″ baysm alongside a single 5.25″-to-3.5″ adapter. The Sonata Elite will retail for approximately $120.
