5 HTPC Cases Tested
The HTPC came about to combine many or all components of a home theater setup into a single box. As a convergence device, the HTPC combines the functions of a personal computer and a digital video recorder. Effectively a HTPC can replace DVD/Blu-ray players, CD players, recording devices and various other multimedia entertainment devices.
One of the greatest challenges a HTPC faces is fitting in with the rest of your living room equipment, and this burden is placed at large on the case. Besides good looks, the case must operate at a reasonable volume and for a HTPC that volume is near silent. And while the volume issue can easily be solved by lowering fan speeds, this usually creates another potentially worse problem, heat!
Today we are going to look at some new HTPC cases that range in size, price, and features. These HTPC cases include the Antec MicroFusion Remote 350, Silverstone LC13B-E, Lian-Li PC-C37, Thermaltake DH104, and GlacialTech Altair A381.
