You could check http://www.hd-plex.com/compatibility.html
Rule of thumb is that if nothing is blocking the heatpipe path, most mini-ITX and microATX should work with the heatsink sytem.

I will expand that list soon.

Im interested in the H5 case. Is it possible to fit a 3.5" and a 2.5" HDD along with an 5.25" optical drive? Maybe some velcro on top of the 3.5" to stick the 2.5" HDD?

The H5.SODD will support 1xSSD,1x3.5HDD, and slim 12.7mm slot loading optical drive. It could also support 3xSSD(no 3.5HDD).
The H5.ODD won't be released since it would have to sacrifice internal PSU placement, SSD position, expansion card for a 5.25" ODD.

I'm very interested in the H3.S. I use XBMC/Linux and pretty much need Nvidia for the GPU. Does anyone know of a MB that'll fit that has a NVidia GPU?

Any idea when the H10 or H5 cases will be available? I'm very interested in redoing my HTPC to make it virtually silent. These cases look to be the perfect solution.

Thanks.

Silent PC Review has a review up now, but honestly I'm starting to lose patience. Is there ANY time frame at all when we can expect these cases to finally be available for purchase?

That is great news Larry.

I also agree w/ your responses to the SPCR quibbles on the H10. The review was great, as expected from SPCR, but I felt each would take away from my own personal appeal on the H10.

As evident by my review of the H10, I'm a big fan of the minimalist front-plate and the symmetry in the heat-sink fins. I also like having the PSU secured within the chassis to reduce cable clutter. To each their own though.

I inquired about the H5.ODD Fanless Chassis last night. Is it available?

Anyone know of any other case ideas that fit in the audio rack that look similiar?

This isn't for an HTPC but Vortexbox.

Any word on the H5.SODD? I don't see it on the website, but this is exactly the configuration I need. It looks like there is room for one card there, and I'm going to need the Ceton InfiniTV 4 to fit... It will fit right? THANKS!

Just a quick shout out to Larry at HD-Plex. Without going into the details (though there was never a real 'problem') Larry is a rare business person these days as he has provided a level of customer service to me that can only come when you truly care about the people buying and using the product.

Thanks!!!
