Summary: Great solid case for an HTPC. Not the cheapest but neither were the alternatives. It sits just nicely under my tv unit. I used this for an i5 3700k build. Was a bit overkill for an HTPC but I wanted it to be as powerful as my budget could afford so I needed a case with plenty of space for cooling...
Summary: Because it's relatively compact for what it can pack it does take some time to mount the components inside and to route the cables, but it has got a very good internal layout in terms of making the best use of the available space.
Summary: Pros This case is well made, feels strong and is well finished - feels like quality Looks great in the media cabinet Lots of cooling Floor of case has raised hoops for cable ties which are supplied along with the usual set of screws Cons Interior space is inefficient and claims that you can fit 4 x...
Excerpt: I think this is one of the best cases you can get for an HTPC it fits into the HiFi rack & looks good. There is enough space inside for most users & the layout is well thought out. the case comes with three fans, all intake.
Really like this case, fits in my stereo cabinet a treat.

Excerpt: This is a good quality case. The only downside when using a modular power supply is its a very tight fit unless all the cables come out the base of the power supply unit due to the hard drive bays. I managed (just) with a modular Cosair unit but you do need to force things a little.
Excerpt: This is a nice HTPC case with a shallower depth than most cases, making it easier to fit into most TV cabinets. The shallowness does impede on space a bit, but there is some flexibility in locating the hard drives / SSDs which helps.
Summary: Bought for my HTC upgrade, plenty of space for all your components and importantly for me a full size GPU. Excellent cooling as well, teamed up with some Akasa Vipers and a fan controller its silent and has temps that i'm happy with (my old case got a bit too warm at points for my liking).
Summary: Built my Media PC in this case and it sits under the telly next to the sky box, ps3 etc. Have had it for coming on to 2 years now and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it. Not changed any of the cooling from stock and if you pair it with a quiet PSU then its very, very quiet.
