Conclusion: Performance for most any computer case usually comes down to thermal management. How cool does it keep the internal components and how much noise does it make while doing so? Noise is perhaps the dominant aspect for a Home Theater application. Not every DVD has non-stop explosions and car chases, which would mask the sound of six cooling fans. HTPC users have their quieter moments, too.
Pros: Compatible with oversized components, Dual video card support, Front panel looks great, hides everything, Sturdy construction, Three high quality 120 mm fans included, Flexible airflow configurations, Lockable power switch, Positive case pressure keeps dust out
Cons: Possible interference with VGA power connections, Optical drives don't lift out with drive carriage, PCI slot hardware blocked by cover with limited value, Bottom fan filters don't slide out the front for cleaning, No IR support on front panel, Bigger case + bigger components = same build difficulty
