    I'm putting together my next workstation and as my current Supermicro X5DAE
    (dual 2.8g Prestonia) triple-head (Matrox Parhelia AGP) system has never, ever
    had an unplanned outage (no BSODs, no Explorer dirt-naps, no power or thermal
    fails, no anything!) I'm sticking with the same brands for the next one.

    So I'm going to use the Supermicro X6DA8-G2 board
    http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon800/E7525/X6DA8-G2.cfm

    in an SC743S1-645 case.
    http://www.supermicro.com/products/chassis/4U/743/SC743S1-645.cfm

    with one of these, in case anyone's interested:
    http://www.matrox.com/mga/media_center/press_rel/2005/matrox_qid_lp_pcie.cfm

    driving three 21" tubes.

    It's the case I'm wondering about.

    Living with an SC762 case
    http://www.supermicro.com/products/chassis/tower/760/SC762-420.cfm
    for the last 2 years has been "special" ;-) The case itself was fine, but the
    power supply is a loud sonofabeeyotch, and I'd sure like to avoid that this
    time around.

    So I thought I'd at least ask: has anyone been near enough to an SC743S1-645
    or similar case to know if the power supply they use is in fact "low noise"?
    (in an absolute sense - even my SC762 is "low noise" compared to a 747 ;-)

    Thanks for any real-life experiences...
