HTPC cases, we are seeing more of them as HTPC’s are becoming more popular, and easy to setup. My current HTPC is sitting in a Raidmax Scorpio Case. Which as you can see is not the best case for an HTPC. Today we will be taking a look at ThermalRock’s Mystic HTPC case. ThermalRock is a subsidiary of Thermaltake, who we all know are known for making good products. This is my first HTPC case so I’m excited to take a look at it! We will see if it will replace the Raidmax case, and become part of my home theater system.
The Mystic comes in a very colorful box. The box even has a handle at the top for easy transportation. The back of the box lists the features of the case so you know what you are getting.
Opening the box up we can see that everything is nicely placed inside of the box. Styrofoam and a sheet protect the case from getting scratched or damaged. On top of everything is a small bag that has a dust sheet, audio pass through, and an instructional manual.
Here are the specs directly from ThermalRock’s website:
