Lascala Series SST-LC10B-E-USB 3.0 Home Theater PC Case
title

Built to perform, the LC10-E has a cooling configuration rarely seen in HTPC cases. The two rear 8025 fan-configuration provides ample airflow to easily handle the heat from a Core2 Quad processor. But having great thermal performance did not compromise anything on the LC10-E as our engineers created a front panel that is both elegant and devoid of unsightly holes. This philosophy of no compromises again results in a HTPC case with an unparalleled combination of style and function.

1 out of 5 eggsToo Bad Drive Won't Fit

Pros: Beautiful, well built, can use a long video card

Cons: The front panel has a cutout for the eject button on the optical drive. I tried 4 different drives and in every case the cutout is about 3/8 of an inch below the eject button. Opening for the disk tray lines up perfectly but there would be no way eject a disk.

Other Thoughts: Requesting RMA. Disappointed, really liked the case.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic HTPC case

Pros: + super solid build quality
+ full ATX form factor friendly, mATX compatible too
+ mounting points for up to SEVEN 3.5" HDDs
+ if you use a 5.25" to 3.5" adapter, an 8th HDD could be mounted above the optical drive bay

Cons: - the 2 optional 80mm front intake fans mount inside the HDD bays thus reducing the bay depth by the thickness of the fan
- the structural support bracket is positioned directly above the top PCIe slot which is where graphics cards are typically installed. *May* interfere with GPU power connection plugs.
- challenging cable management
- built like a tank, and weighs as much!

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd review of this case as well. I purchased the non-USB 3.0 version (N82E16811163118) from Newegg back in Jan, 2010. I recently completed a major upgrade and thought a new review was in order.

To Silverstones credit, they offer a USB 3.0 "upgrade kit" for the older version of this case which is available for purchase over the phone for $10 +S&H.

Motherboard:
I originally installed an Asus M4A78-E ATX motherboard. I'm now using an Asus M5A99FX PRO motherboard. Both full size ATX motherboards fit in the case just fine. A mATX motherboard would offer more room to work, so I suggest going with that unless you feel you really need the extra expansion slots. I'm still using my AMD Phenom II X6 1075 Tuban CPU as it's awesome in this HTPC.

Graphics card:
While most integrated graphics are plenty strong enough for full HD playback, I prefer to use a dedicated graphics card to leverage the GPU compute capability of my ripping/encoding software. My previous GPU was an XFX Radeon 5670 1GB. At the time is was the strongest Radeon that did not require an additional power connection. While ATI graphics cards are better for video playback, most ripping/encoding programs are optimized for nVidia CUDA. I upgraded to an Asus GTX 650 Ti 1GB with Direct CU II cooler. It's an 8 1/2" card which fits just fine. However, the 6-pin power plug is oriented perpendicularly to the card. As a result, the support bracket of the case interferes with the plug. It fits, but the wires touch the bracket. I suggest using a GPU that either has no additional power requirement, or one with a parallel aligned plug like this: XFX Double D FX-785A-CDJ4 Radeon HD 7850 2GB (N82E16814150672).

RAM:
In my original build I used Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 X 2GB) DDR2 800 RAM with low profile heatsinks. My new motherboard requires DDR3 RAM, so I chose Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 RAM(N82E16820226296). The RAM is awesome, but the DVD drive power plug and SATA plug touch the RAM heatsink. It fits, but just barely! These Mushkin Ridgeback heatsinks aren't nearly as tall as some I've used such as the Corsair Vengeance (N82E16820145345), I *strongly* suggest going with something like the Mushkin Stealth (N82E16820226398) series or the G.Skill Ares (N82E16820231548) series to avoid any interference issues.

PSU:
I use the modular Corsair AX 850 PSU (N82E16817139015). Given the utter lack of any cable management what-so-ever, a modular PSU is highly advisable.

Conclusion:
A HTPC is not an "easy" build. You need to plan well, be patient, and take your time. I use mine every single day and this case looks fantastic and functions amazingly well. In my enclosed oak entertainment system, my CPU temps idle at 28 C and with all 6 cores @ 100% during a rip/encode it tops out at 43 C. I'm using a Cooler Master Hyper TX2 (N82E16835103031) and this 137mm tall cooler fits in the case perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsMy 2nd review

Pros: 7x 3.5" bays & 2 5.25" slots.
Plenty of room for a beefy HTPC setup.
Full size ATX support. (Motherboard & Power Supply)
USB 3.0.
Hard Drive cooling supports 2x 80mm fans.
Build quality is very good.

Cons: Some areas are a little tight to work in.
Cabling & powering your hard drives takes time & concentration.
Overall size may be a considerable factor & with all bays fully loaded, weight could be an issue.
PSU size could be a factor
Dedicated Graphics cards cant be full size (unless removing the middle HDD caddy)

Other Thoughts: So this is my second review of this case. Reason is that I just upgraded to Z87 and added some more storage space.
After owning it for a year and basically having to disassemble the entire thing, I had to re-review it because overall, this is such a good, hardcore HTPC case. Of all the setups I've had this is by far the best and quality is higher than average. If you want a solid, long lasting dedicated HTPC my recommendations for this case are extremely high.
Yes, you do need to sit down and spend some time routing cables for a nice airflow and where the sata headers are on this board (Asus Z87-Plus) makes for a tough time to get things right, but I also like the challenge and the outcome is rewarding.
One thing I did do this time was weight the beast and with all bays loaded, it comes in at a whopping 45lbs....but this is my 2nd baby and I love her!
I'm sure that this case will last long into the future and through a good handful more upgrades.
This and the last build I didnt use a dedicated graphics card and for good reason, my last card didnt fit anyway, but using the Intel onboard graphics suits my needs anyway.
And the previous complaints of power supply size are warranted but you do need to spend some time making things work. Today I spent over 4 hours disassembling and reassembling the new hardware into it. Take a day and drink some beers. Goodluck!

2 out of 5 eggsLooks good; poor build quality

Pros: The exterior looks pretty good, and the case is large enough to accommodate a standard ATX motherboard.

Cons: I expected the build to be a little cramped, but I did not expect the poor quality of the interior build. Holes for fan mountings were off or sized wrongly. The elegant DVD door does not operate properly, even with the little foam plug that is supplied to address the problems. I am sorry I bought this case.

5 out of 5 eggsBEAUTIFUL

Pros: Pictures dont do it justice, It really LOOKS great in person, very solid brushed aluminum face. Sturdy and heavy.
Price isnt SO bad.. with a rebate (which is to complicated a procedure, treat your customers will alittle more respect, dont make us jump through hoops and flip backwards to get $10 back)

Cons: The front fans attacth to the HDD cage, this is tricky and means with the use of (i used a HIS ICEQ 7870 2gb5) which is like 11+ long and 5.5" high. It FITS!! The bar across the top will hit the heatpipes but its an easy fix, either dont use it or cut away alil on the side of that bar.. Simple.
But using this card meant removing one of the HDD cages which meant I could only mount ONE fan in the front, I wanted to use 2 90mm fans in front.
I could CUT the hdd cage still.. but thats gonna be a pain.
The front wiring seems a bit clustered and in the way of the afformentioned front intake fan issues.

Other Thoughts: People complain about assembly, but its an HTPC, supposed to take your time and wire it slowly
I had slight trouble, but thats part of the fun for me. It all wired up beautifully in the end
Used a
750w Fully Mod OCZ psu
Gigabyte 990fx ud3 atx mobo
AMD phenom 965 be
HIS Iceq 7870
16gb ram
Samsung 120gb SSD (hidden nicely under the optical drive, room for 2 there I believe)
3TB Seagate HDD
1 90mm front intake fan.

My temps do not exceed 55c.. that video card stays under 50c, the cpu usually about 50c, while playing graphics intense video games. So it all stays cool in this case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Lots of drive space, great cooling setup. Looks great in a stack of components. Built in optic drive look works very well.

Cons: Tight when using a Full ATX board. Wiring gets a bit a mess when running more than a couple of drives.

Other Thoughts: I have built 4 machines on this box, I have tried others but always return to this one. Lots of room to expand and the cooling on this thing with two silent 80's mounted up front is superb.

I agree with others above assemble in the order given by the instructions, and all is well.

Great HTPC platform with lots of room to grow.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case but be careful

Pros: Heavy duty solid case
Front panel design great
Takes ATX motherboard
Takes ATX standard PSU

Cons: Horizontal configuration build challenges

Selection of CPU coolers is limited by space even in this relatively large HTPC case. CPU fans are notoriously loud as well. I found the Silverstone NT01-E, Item#: N82E16835220032 cooler to be perfect for this case. It is designed to work with the rear twin 80mm fans provided.

Other Thoughts: This is a solid case with a beautiful and functional front panel. However the horizontal configuration of the case causes build challenges for those of us use to building vertical desktop PC's.
First, read the build instructions that come with the case. I did not, and had to take apart and reassemble several times because I followed the wrong installation order.

The DVD/BD drive is forced to a low internal mounting position because of the front door location. I had no problem with the installation or operation of the optical drive however the bottom of the drive is directly above the 24 pin ATX power plug. I found the best way to route the 24 pin ATX cable was through the small space under the optical drive and onto the motherboard from the side.

The ATX power supply unit is very close to the motherboard and the connections on this side of the mother board should be made first if you are adding any cards that ride close to the PSU.

The biggest issue I had was cabling up the SATA connections. Mount your drives in the removable fixtures first and then install them in the case as suggested by the instructions. There is room on the front of the drive fixtures to mount 80mm fans if you like and there is an intake grill surrounding the front plate. After everything is in then run your SATA signal and power cables. If you attempt to take out and re-install drives and drive fixtures, plugging and unplugging SATA cables, you have a much greater chance of breaking the plastic guides around the SATA plugs. Like I did. This is not a big deal if you break a cable (which I did) but popping off the SATA plug guides on your new 2TB HDD is, well, bad. I have built a lot of PC's and I attribute this problem to the horizontal arrangement of the drives and the limited vertical room to access the plugs. Also the standard power SATA plugs are spaced for a vertical arrangement and I found it impossible to power drives in two separate drive fixtures with the same SATA power line. Bottom line - if you have to plug or unplug your SATA connections in this case be careful.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat looking case, hard to install.

Pros: Great Looking
Solid Construction
Lots of 2.5" HDD Bays
Great Power Button

Cons: HDD Caddie overhangs the motherboard by about 2"

Not enough space inside, harder to work on than most laptops

Really should only fit mATX
It advertised as having an unlimited PSU size capacity, which; is true, but only if you remove three of the HDD caddies. Then if you want to fit a long graphics card you have to remove the other three HDD caddies leaving only one working HDD bay...

I had to go out and buy a new shorter PSU and had to limit myself to a GTX 660 graphics card because of the size limitations of this case.

Other Thoughts: I have a coolmax ZU-800 modular power supply which barely fits... In order to plug in the HDD bays I have to remove the PSU and reinstall it only after everything else is plugged in. Sometime a cable falls out or breaks though, making the process a real challenge. I recommend getting a PSU with low profile power plugs and low profile sata cables to make installation little easier.

Either that or buy a larger case... I would have given this case 5 eggs if only it were two inches longer and the sata drives did not overhang the motherboard by almost two inches.

4 out of 5 eggsSOLID!

Pros: 7x 3.5" bays & 2 5.25" slots.
Plenty of room for a beefy HTPC setup.
Full size ATX support.
USB 3.0.
Hard Drive cooling supports 2x 80mm fans.
Build quality is very good.

Cons: Some areas are a little tight to work in.
Initially seems fairly noisy (tweak your fans in bios).
Overall size may be a considerable factor.

Other Thoughts: This is an upgrade case that has delivered well for me. The extra space provided is more than adequate for the average needs of a HTPC and leaves room for expansion in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Media Case

Pros: Matches most mid to high end AV equipment perfectly, clean look, and well thought out.

Front comes with 2 usb 3.0 and a down converter encase you don't have that option on your mobo. Fits full sized hardware, and has tons of room for hard drives.

Cons: Lots of screws to get it apart, but it is a HTPC so do it once and call it a day.

Silverstone is proud of their products ($$$.... Life goes on).

Wish it had two drive slots... even it one was hard to get to.

Other Thoughts: I love this thing, the fact that it matches the high-end Yamaha, Denon, and Sony receivers (and probably the other high output models) makes this a huge selling point for me.
