    The lesson to be learned is that sometimes it's better to have better airflow, for lower fan speeds than restrictive intakes with the intention of deflecting noise

    Or to run a mid-level case with mid-level hardware?

    Definately - you've hit the Nail on the head there. If you are getting better hardware and want to use a sound-proofed case, look at the Obsidian 550D instead.

    I always tend to drop a bit of my budget on my chassis - its the thing I hardly change and the last one I was using prior to the Corsair 600T chassis I have now lasted 10 years before it needed to be replaced, even with serial upgrades.

    Very good for starter and intermediate builds, yeah.
    But TBH, if you're building everything else high-end, £50-100 extra on a high end-ish case (summat like the 500R or 750D would probably do) wouldn't be that much in the grand scheme.
