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
I went for the Lian Li PC-V351, great layout, fits heaps, good airflow, all around awesome HTPC case. Also, looks like a small sub ^_^
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..
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.
EDIT: fixing URL
thanks for the relies lads.
@ET That's a little too small for me haha
@whoop yeah man nailed it! it's going to go under my draws where i my old SFF low-profile rig used to live plus my original ps3.
@Coldy that PC 351v case looks great, but i's too tall unfortunatly
@jerry i've been looking at silverstone cases for a few days now. the SG01-F usb3.0 looks pretty cool
@ickus good stuff man, wish mine would have a receiver
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.
