View Full Version : Recommend me a good ATX HTPC Case
Looks like my SD wont sell in the for sale forum, so im considering making it into a nice media centre pc for my plasma to replace my xbox with media centre.
What good ATX cases are there, i cant spend a fortune unfortunately, but would want to get a decent looking case.
Alternatively, is there any M-ATX socket 939 boards about?
i have one of these,
takes m-atx, full height cards, etc
looks like 2 dvd players on top of each other, very easy to work with, both 5-1/4" and 3.5" cages are removeable, stealthed drives,
pretty good all round. :)
I bought a Thermaltake Tenor(Silver) recently & for the money its a cracking case. Takes full size ATX PSU & Motherboard. I have a MSI K8N & a Tagan 480W in it no probs
I'm planning to use this (http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_5577.html) M-ATX mobo for my next HTPC. Very nice spec including X300 onboard graphics which are plenty for HTPC use.
foxconn do a matx nf4 board ;) and iirc MSI do a ATi one
If you have full size stuff, then either the Silverstone LC-13 / LC10M / Accent HT400 case would be suitable.
LC13 is a nice entry level option that still looks great. LC10M is similar but includes a VFD display and remote kit. The Accent HT400 has a thicker front panel which makes it look a bit 'higher end' but it's certainly quite a bit more expensive.
As above, we already sell 939 M-ATX boards if you're looking at going down that road.
