HTPC case
10 posts
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

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.

EDIT: fixing URL

@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

the fractal node 304 might fit the size. it doesn't have any room for an optical drive but it looks good. im going to get a white one next and sit it next to the black one

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.

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.
