Awesome Case

Andy W., Newegg
7 August 2010
  • Summary: The case features high quality construction, very solid. Well thought out design.
  • Pros: LCD works with Mythbuntu 10.04 All info shows up on the LCD in Mythfrontend. LCD works on Ubuntu 10.04 with LCDproc. Rhythmbox works with LCD. (You have to add the LCDproc plugin and Python wrapper) Remote works in Ubuntu 10.04 lirc manual config
  • Cons: LCD/Remote Mfgr does not support Linux. Luckily LCDproc server works with it out of the box on the latest Ubuntu Linux 10.04 A bit pricey but worth it.

DH 103

John C., Newegg

  • Summary: The case's great overall, I have been able to fit a large CPU fan, a massive video card, 5 hard-drives, plus a bunch of other stuff and have had no problems whatsoever with space. On the other hand, it is a little on the loud side. Not overwhelming, but certainly noticeable when the TV is off.
  • Pros: Roomy enough for almost any equipment, sufficient cooling, attractive design
  • Cons: LED display ain't great, a little on the noisy side

Great Case

James B., Newegg
19 January 2010
  • Summary: I really like this case. I wanted a HTPC case that fit a 12" exhaust fan, and there are exactly two choices today: This Thermaltake case, or a Silverstone CW-02 for ~$100 more. The only real difference is a card reader, and that wasn't worth 100 bucks to me.
  • Pros: - Two 12" fans - Plenty of room for any video card, and it won't interfere with any drives. - Screw-less case top allows easy access. - Has two holes in the back for water-cooling tubes. - No need to mess around with the cover of your CD-ROM drive. - High quality all around
  • Cons: - No external 3.5" drive bay, thus no way to add an internal card reader. - I have no need for the remote and media software. - A pain to swap out the front fan, but doable (requires taking off the front faceplate).
