Looking for new case.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Currently I got Haf 932. It just doesn't fit anymore. From the aesthetics point of view.
I wanted to Fractal R4, but now I'm leaning towards HTPC's. Setup is in the living room after all... The winner for the looks is Fractal Node 605, but... it won't fit nh-d14 inside of it and I'm kinda in the place where I don't/can't change hardware at this point.

I need help to find HTPC that will fit my current hardware. Silverstone is not really an option at this point because I really don't like their logo in the middle on front panel.

470 GPU's changed to single 480 and there's total of 3 HDD's now.

Thanks, but I'm not looking for tower. If it's going to be tower it'll be R4 from fractal.

What are the dimensions?

I still think Silverstone would not be bad idea. Their logo is not too bad.

I had tried the node 605 and its a solid case just a bit cramped. Also look at Lian Li since with the 605 you are heading in their price range.

Must house ATX mobo, gigabyte 480 gtx and nh-d14 that is 160mm tall.
Lian-Li C60 looks like the one that can handle height of the D14.

I've seen smaller silverstone, the one that's 05, and I'm not sold for it at all. I want it to have superb aesthetics. Like high-end stereo.

Height will be the big issue. My Antec HTPC case is not even tall enough for a graphics card that require more than MB power. And that is often the problem with the "pretty" ones.

I second the HAF XB suggestion. While not technically a HTPC case, it does have the horizontal MB tray and planty of room. I absolutely love mine. Main issue might be that it is not as small or pretty as you might like.
