Dear HTPC pros,
I am looking to build my first HTPC and after quite some research havent quite started. My issue is finding the right case.
My specs are not really cost driven, so no isues there. I want something smart, not too big and if possible a bit sexy. I have no designs to fill it with storage as all media is network based so limited expansion requirements. So, simply put, specs are SSD, Gig network,wireless, usb3, win 8, Xbmc. Quite a standard approach.
I have been looking at the streacom fc9 as this ticks a lot of boxes but am concerned about the fanlless approach since i live in australia and things get hot over here. I guess what i am asking is your opinions on the fc9 and warm environment and potential alternatives with or without fans
