4 out of 5 eggsMakes for a good HTPC

Pros: Stylish, roomy, and fairly easy to work with.
Takes a standard size ATX PSU
Front USB3 ports.

Cons: There's a 3.5"HDD mount under the 5.25" mounting bracket but you have to remove the bracket to really have access to it and its 6 screws to take out that mount. Do this first thing and save yourself some time. LoL

80mm fan mounts don't quite line up with the fan's screw holes but I managed to get 3 fans in with a little force.

Case is shinier than a black optical drive. I'm going to polish and wax my BDR drives face plate to try and get it to match better.

Other Thoughts: There's no front to back airflow, which you know if you look into this before you buy, but the side to rear works for me for this install. I just worry about the SSD & HDD since there is little airflow in that area. Since this is an HTPC and those won't be under heavy use this is probably ok but I would like to see a fan mount on that side of the case too; right next to the HDD mount would be perfect. :-)

4 out of 5 eggsQuality Case

Pros: Everything fit, including an Antec Earthwats 380W PSU.

It looks really nice in a media center with audio hardware, DVD players, DVR, and things like that.

This is a really small case, which is great for an HTPC. It's well-built, though. It just feels like a sturdy, quality case.

Cons: It's pretty cramped in there. We started to put things in at random and soon learned that things need to be installed in a particular order if you want to be able to reach. Just plan it out, though, and it will work out fine.

It was a few years ago now that we put this together. I definitely remember it being one of the more difficult machines I've ever had to assemble because the case was somewhat unpleasant, but we got it all worked out.

My only aesthetic complaint is that the large vent on the right side for the four little fans looks a bit tacky, but that's pretty minor.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you are aware that any expansion cards need to be half-height. Several wireless cards and cable cards come that way anyway (or have optional plates to switch between half-height and full-height), but most high-powered video cards aren't going to fit.

There's a front panel for an LCD screen, but you've got to buy it separately. We didn't do that. It doesn't look strange from the front without it, though.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Decent Case!!!

Pros: Pretty decent case, notable ventilation, decent quality. low profile form factor.

Cons: Maybe the finish on the front, it's hard to get a DVD/Blu Ray drive that matches, a brushed or semi gloss black would have been a better finish on the front panel.

Other Thoughts: Cooling could be a little bit better but, i modified mine, in such a way, that is sucks fresh form under neath and feeds it to the video card. I' also used some pretty crazy and un heard of wire management techniques to route quite few of the wires.

I used a stock phenom II cooler on a 65watt regor and lapped them both, temps are acceptable. (overclocked to 3.6) [GT640 2gb LP]

Ill be upgrading to a quad or 6 core in future with an AXP Muscle 200 CPU cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsSilverstone Case

Pros: Excellent entry HTPC case! Takes a standard ATX power supply. Plenty of options to install HDD. USB 3.0 on front of case (2 of them). Read other reviews of installing DVD/Blu Ray Drive - just make sure the depth of your drive is 170mm or less as it will come in close contact with the power supply. You will need to make sure your SATA power connection angles down as well as the SATA data connection, make sure it angles down, plenty of room to run cables and keep them tidy. I used this Coboc data cable - Coboc Model SC-SATA3-10-LL-BK-90 and used this Nippon Labs power adapter - Nippon Labs POW-S6190-RA. Air flow is well engineered. There is a HUGE intake on top of the case that sits perfectly over my Noctua CPU cooler. There are 4 80mm slots for fans that I filled with Noctua fans as well. My CPU temps at idle are 28C, Motherboard 28C, Watching a BD rip (mkv), temps get up to 35C each for CPU and Motherboard. The 4 80mm fans are setup as exhaust.

Cons: Absolutely NONE!

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Silverstone case in use. I have a GD08 as my Main HTPC and a PS07 for desktop duties. Love there stuff!

4 out of 5 eggsTight fit, but looks nice

Pros: Great case for an HTPC, especially for the price. Solidly built and looks nice.

Cons: This box is on the small size for a Micro ATX build, which makes it a little challenging. It's especially tight between the power supply and the DVD player. But if you're persistent, you can squeeze everything in and you end up with a nice, compact box.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for HTPC

Pros: Small form factor
Good air cross flow
Options

Cons: Small form factor
Internal front panel cabling is thick and gets in the way

Other Thoughts: This case was a great choice for my HTPC build. The internal space is tight but there are plenty of ways to configure your components and keep the cabling out of the way. Currently I have 2x 3.5" HDDs, 1x 2.5" HDD, 1x DVDRW, MicroATX Mainboard and PSU and 4 80mm case fans crammed in there.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Well made, looks nice, understated. Nice cable management built into case.

Cons: Plastic drive riser can't have mounting screws installed once you install a drive have to use right angle screwdriver. I left it out of the build entirely. USB 3.0 cable very long, the motherboard I used has its header right in the front so long cable coiled up and tied.

Other Thoughts: Left the HDD activity light disconnected for media use - too distracting. Depth of unit nice but still too large for my cabinet.

4 out of 5 eggssnazzy

Pros: Looks great. No front panel door to mess with.
Filters for both cpu fan (top) and psu (bottom) intakes.
Aluminum skin on the front panel looks nice.
Very light, but good overall build quality.
USB3 front panel ports (now standard).

Cons: The plastic edges running along the front bezel were slightly discolored, though this is impossible to notice from your couch so I didn't bother returning it. I did call Silverstone about it and they were very helpful.

Some screw holes were slightly misaligned, though it might be a result of flex in the case during building without the crossbeam support.

Would have been nice to have a stealth cover for the DVD/BD drive rather than having a plastic front to break up the aesthetics.

Standoffs for motherboard are not removable. Some of them near the front of the case are useless and make mounting fans difficult.

Other Thoughts: I was drawn to the ML04, but opted for this earlier version owing to price and features (namely, I didn't want a front panel door).

It's not that hard to build in this thing as long as you follow the manual, take your time, and place things in order.

As many have noted, be sure your PSU is less than 140 mm. I got a Silverstone SFX psu, which leaves plenty of room behind the BD-ROM drive.

My two HDDs started to get a little toasty for my taste, so I added a single 80mm fan and used silicon mounts. If you are going to use a fan, mount it FIRST before anything else. Otherwise you'll have to remove a few things to make it fit.

My build: i3-4130T + AC Freezer 11 LP, 2x2Gb DDR3, 1xSSD, 2xHDD, Silverstone SFX 300W

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Silverstone makes the best cases period
Great for HTPC
Solid design that feels durable

Cons: Still a little bigger than I would have liked to have, but I knew what I was getting.

Other Thoughts: My main rig is a 10 year old Silverstone case. That thing has been with me to more states than most people have been in their life. Other than a couple of mods I did to it, it still looks brand new. Silverstone products will last!

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC Build

Pros: Looked like what I expected with my order. Size is perfect for my needs, but requires creative thought to get everything into the limited interior space eg. wiring. (howevere, no surprize here).

Cons: Maybe just me, but I thought that the preinstalled wiring (2-usb 3.0 and audio/power/leds) were excessively long considering they only had to reach mini or macro board positions. Aside from that I can't really fault this case.

Other Thoughts: For someone wanting a HTPC case to go in their A/V system.....I would recommend. It's good looking and looks like it should be there.
