Default DIY Case for home theater PC (HTPC)

With the development of LCD TV, HTPC (home theater PC) becomes very hot among audiophiles recently. We are going to develop some cases for HTPC. These cases will have the same style with other audio enclosures. They are very nice looking when placed on the top or bottom of the amplifiers made by our other enclosures as audio source.

This is our newest product:
RE2307PC DIY Case for home theater PC (HTPC)

Ray,

Step in the right direction.

Regarding the power supply unit - have you thought about the smaller units available nowadays? I might be mistaken, but this looks like a full size unit that is contributing to overall height of the chassis.

There are some motherboards that accept power bricks directly, eliminating the need for a PSU inside the chassis, but that might lead to limiting the options for potential clients. But if you are flexible you can try that form factor out too, and have links for those motheboard/CPU combos for better understanding of your clients.

I like the form factor.

Can it fit an m-ATX motherboard? (you should mention motherboard size in the specs)
How about adding an optical drive?

Hi zman01

SFX or other smaller psu can be mounted by adaptors. This case is for ITX mother board, which is smaller than m-ATX.

Hi etal

it's for ITX, m-ATX is to big to fit in.

no optical drive on this model. Another modle with optical drive cut out frontpanel will be ready soon. Another modle is mounted with a small high resolution LCD.

I'm thinking of add a RCA for aduio input/output, specially designed for audiophiles, what's your thoughts?
