Therefore I will replace with the SP fans so that I can run them at a lower rpm and so that it looks nicer. I will stick with the 550D for build quality. I hope nothing gets damaged in the post like I assume yours was crisao23. :)
Glad you've made your choice, but don't forget to post pics once you've got it up and running :)
It'll be a great little system, and should have tons of upgrade-ability and should be future proof for a good few years, just be careful though, cause the upgrading bug might get you

Yup, me too :) I started off upgrading a Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop, and we had an old pre-built Pentium D desktop and it died, so I gutted it and built my first system into it, and I haven't looked back since then
