I'd love to see some screenshots too, could get some good ideas for cable mgmt in these kinds of cases.

+1! Always good to learn and see what is feasible. Thanks in advance!

No problem. I hope we can get more people with this series of cases to join in on the discussion. It is interesting to see what others have done. I wonder if at Computex they showed off a GD09 or not?

If I had the funds and means to make my own case, I have some crazy HTPC ideas. The GD08 is about as close as perfect you can get for a HTGPC imo and with a few changes the case would be top notch. I sent a PM to Silverstone on these forums about a week ago, but he never responded so my thoughts have gone to the wind.

SilverstoneTek showed a prototype of the Raven mITX case. Might work out to be pretty good.

Here are some updated pics, I added the HX750 today after returning the Thermaltake I had a few days ago. The HX750 is a longer PSU and you can see how it fits in this case.

That Raven mitx case looks pretty cool. I wonder how the video card slot works in this thing. It just seems like odd how its placed on top of everything. Really cool how you can fit a water cooler in there too.

I think it was using a riser board for the PCIe slot so the GPU can site flat over the top of teh mobo

I noticed a lot of new Smaller cases were shown of at Computex. Going to be a lot more options in this space I think.

This is awesome since it brings some competition to a niche market. the Corsair Air 540 reminds me of the HAF XB.
