HTPC case

I'm looking for a decent HTPC form factor case and needs to support full size cards, not the crappy low profile cards like the HD 5450. I would like it to be no larger than 23cm high, 33cm Wide and 43cm deap.

I just built an HTPC out of an Intel NUC. Not a lot bigger than an Apple TV but s*** loads more flexible and powerful.

Intel NUC from Umart

I though in a small SSD and 4 gig of ram and installed Windows 8 on it. Boots up in no time flat and works great with a Logitech K400R keyboard. Costs totals a little over $400

I'm guessing he wants an HTPC style case for a full sized PC so he can stick it on his desk

you are going to have to search - the problem with the dimensions you've requested is that most HTPC cases are designed wider than they are deep..

You can get a large htpc case which will take an ATX m/b, or if you are trying to use a mATX m/b with a full size videocard, then you may get away with a slightly smaller case to fit within the dimensions.

examples of some atx compatible htpc case dimensions:
SilverStone GD08 - 44cm W * 17.5cm H * 43.5cm D
Silverstone GD01B-R-USB3 - 43cm W * 17cm H * 43cm D
Silverstone GD05B-USB3 - 44cm W * 15cm H * 33cm D
Antec NSK2480B - 44.5cm W * 13.97cm H * 41.4cm D

the silverstone website has a filter where you can put in the desired motherboard + videocard size + other features, and see what cases will fit them:

obviously there are other brands you could choose, but i cbf looking any further into it

33cm wide is going to be the slightly harder part as its not a normal case size which probably pushes you close to mini ITX sizes.

I have had one of these for years now but it would be too wide for you.
Antec NK2480B

Mine also has a build in IR receiver and volume control on the front which doesn't appear to be on the current model.

@Coldy that PC 351v case looks great, but i's too tall unfortunatly

has anyone used the sg01-f usb 3.0 case from silverstone? looks like the perfect case for my needs and is big enough to fit even the largest cards

I've built a mini-ITX gaming rig in a Silverstone SG07. It is a little noisy by my standards (read: not very noisy at all) but will fit all but the biggest video cards in it too.

Take a gander at the SG08 too.

hi bobby, i've got a very similar case to the sg01-f (the sg02-f)

its been sitting in a cupboard now unused for about 6months as i couldn't fit it in an entertainment unit well (too tall)

other than being too tall it was fine for fitting a largish video card in - however if you need to get in and do work on the machine later on its a b**** - fairly hard to get into ram and fan, hdd, etc connections once everything is put in. Needs a matx m/b too

It won't be able to fit water coolers in it (if you had considered this, that is); also because of the psu placement, you will probably need a slim cpu hsf (in case you don't already have).

You may also need to pad it out with dust protection (mine was a magnet for dust.. one of the worst due to the number of vent holes in the top and side).

Silverstone also make very good PSUs. I have 4 of them so far at home and they all run great. The larger 850+ watt ones give very, very stable voltages. The entire desk with 4 screens and 2 computers comes out with a power factor of 0.93, very efficient PSUs. If you're going to run the system 24/7 I'd recommend a gold/platinum PSU for your rig.
