Hello Forum,


I want to build a HTPC with a H55 board, yet undecided which one...but probably the Intel or the MSI. (Micro-Atx)


Do you have any recommendations or cases to avoid with these boards?


If possible, I would like it to contain 1 BlueRay drive and maybe 2 x 3.5 HDD, or at least 1


Thanks, Mads

You may be right that there is nothing special about it...I just wanted to make sure i didnt buy a casing that had caused other people problems with fitting..so I guess I should rephrase the question:


Can you recommend a microATX casing for HTPC usage, that is relatively easy to work with and does not take too much customization? (As I am a rookie in this field)


Specifically, I am considering the Antec NSK1380....but very open to suggestions


Thx, M

There are numerous threads over time in this form on all sorts of cases. Do a search for them. Newegg also has an entire section for HTPC cases. Just do a power search and narrow down the list based on form factor. You can also match a variety of other criterias such as display, number of drive bays, IR, card readers, color, etc.

Allright will do.


That Silverstone GD04 looks pretty cool BTW!


Thanks guys
