Enlight case, wot no speaker?

    Just treated myself to an Enlight microtower EN-2400 which at £ 38.00 wasn't
    cheap. I must say everything feels a bit more flimsy than expected, but time
    will tell whether I've made the right decision.

    One thing that struck me, the case doesn't have a built in PC speaker. I am
    only an occasional system builder and I don't know what I'd do without my
    beep codes following POST!

    Clearly I can just temporarily connect another speaker when I build a new
    system, but I am thinking what about the entire life span of the PC,
    occasionally components do fail and the beep code can point you in the right
    direction.

    I noticed that this 'tower' is very low volume, yet rated for seriously hot
    processors; it has ventilation holes everywhere and I wonder, could the
    omission of a speaker be to do with fairly desparate attempts at meeting
    some cooling standard?

    Or is this a general trend? I wouldn't mind so long as mobos come with some
    onboard tweety things instead, but my new Asus mobo certainly hasn't.
