Looking for a HTPC case

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone would know of a good case i can use for a HTPC build that would accommodate
a Palit GTX 1050Ti KalmX passive GPU?
The problem is this card is 14cm high .
Currently using a Silverstone GD06 but the GPU is just a bit high so i can close the case lid.
Case also needs to fit an optical drive, 2x HDD and 1x SSD.

Cheers guys

I got fed up with all the restrictions involved in assembling a capable HTPC in a pretty case. Now I put all my equipment in a rack in a ventilated closet. Much easier to deal with when reconfiguration is needed, and the HTPC is in a Norco 4220 hot-swap RAID case.


I run fiber optic HDMI to the TV, and speaker cables in the walls. Much better than a pile of equipment in an "entertainment center".

I've never heard of your card but any full tower should work. Cases with drive slots are becoming more rare. I have a big full tower case for one of my machines. Its massive, can fit just about anything in there. Google Rosewill Thor v2.

JBL 590 fronts, 520 center, 530 surrounds, NHT Superzero Atmos heights, twin Devastators with LaVoce 214 drivers and pushed with a Behringer NX6000D amp. 2019 75" Vizio P-series Quantum. Bryston 9BST x2 for the surrounds and heights, Bryston 6BST for LCR. Integra 80.3 but waiting eagerly on a Monoprice HTP-1.

Check for Silverstone cases. They have plenty of options.
