Not that long ago we took a look at Fractal Design’s Node 304 case. This small form factor case was made for mini-ITX motherboards. Today we have the Node 304’s big brother the Node 605. This case is designed the be a home theater PC case. It supports full ATX motherboards, which is great as many people repurpose old systems into home theater PC’s. The front of the case has a nice brushed aluminum finish and inside you have room for up to 4 hard drives. Other features include USB 3.0 support, a card reader and two 120mm fans included. Is this the case for your next HTPC build?
HDPLEX will release slim tray optical drive versions of the H3 and H5 passive HTPC cases next week. Both cases come with a Blu-ray ROM drive that has a brushed aluminum finish to match the front panel.
The home theater PC (HTPC) market is still very big and almost everyone I know these days have some sort of computer connected to their TV. With HDMI you can easily connect any PC to your TV for easy viewing of movies, TV shows, YouTube and much more. The thing is no one wants an ugly tower sitting next to their TV stand. For this reason the HTPC case was created. SilverStone’s Grandia Series is their line of mainstream HTPC cases and today we are taking a look at the Grandia Series GD08. The GD08 features support for motherboards up to extended ATX, room for up to 12 hard drives, USB 3.0 support and a sleek brushed aluminum front bezel. Read on as we take a look at the GD08!
