The LIAN LI PC-Q09R Mini-ITX case is a great choice for space-limited conditions, such as HTPC. You can simply mount the case on the back and the monitor becomes an all-in-one computer. This small form factor case offers a compact and convenient solution for housing a mini-ITX system, and has many of the features you'd expect from a larger box, all orderly arranged to do the job neatly and efficiently. The separation of the heat sources is for better thermal solution. And the 80mm fan on the side panel keeps hot air from damaging your hardware. The front I/O panel gives hassle-free access to two USB 3.0 ports and audio jacks.

Other Thoughts: The build consisted of
