HTPC 6000

The HTPC 6000 series was designed for one purpose: allowing users to build their dream HTPC system in a truly CE-looking chassis with all standard components. At first glance, the daring appearance of its exterior design looks and matches your other AV devices. On the other hand, the interior design of the HTPC 6000 is able to accommodate all standard HTPC components; and more importantly, it supports up to six hard drives to meet extended data storage needs. The HTPC 6000 series is one of the best-selling HTPC chassis in North America.

Combining silence, style, easy media access, and an affordable price, the HTPC 6000 series is a state-of-the-art media center. If that wasn't enough, the HTPC 6000 includes all the options for a 20 x 2 LCD Media Center Display. Combine that with our new HTPCKB-100 wireless Keyboard and IR Universal TV Remote set, and the complete build will no doubt provide the ultimate digital home solution.

Offering an Affordable, Stylish AV Case
Again, we achieve the best balance in size, functions, cost and simple design. It looks like an AV device, definitely not a PC - not even close.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case, with potential to be amazing

Pros: - Nice looking
- Spacious...until drive tray is installed
- Fits ATX board
- Plenty of vents
- Potential to be excellent case if willing to mod

Cons: - Drive cage / cabling is a nightmare
- Fitment isn't the best
- Included fans are pathetic
- Knock-out style expansion slots (we 1995 again?)
- No dust covers on air intakes
- PSU mounting holes no aligned (cannot get one screw in)
- PSU intakes air from inside case (cannot be mounted other way without modding)
- Doesn't allow for modern longer GPU's without modding drive cage / trays (which won't allow for the mounting of 2 drives)
- Latching front I/O panel (instead of magnetic, has fitment issues on mine as well)

Other Thoughts: As it stands in its stock form, its just an okay case. If you don't have a large GPU, and don't care about cable management, and you don't get frustrated easily, this case will be great for you. Some tips for assembly would be:

- Dry fit optical drive first, using only rear screws (leaving slightly loose), so you can slide optical drive to needed position. Mark the position on the drive, remove cage, tighten screws.
- Then and only then install hard drives. Connect all wiring to hard drives (power and data) before installing cage
- Get some sticky zip-tie mounts to be able to somewhat control cabling mess

However, in order to make this case excellent, you're going to have to be willing to do some mods.

My mods include:
- Removing right side 120mm fan mount to allow for mounting of AIO CPU Water Cooler
- Removing right side drive trays to allow room for AIO CPU Water Cooler
- Replace rear 80mm fans
- Modify PSU mounting to allow for external air intake
- Notch drive cage to allow for longer GPU (MSI GTX950 Gaming G2 in my case)
- Remove left side drive trays and turn inline with optical drive (makes wiring easier and simpler)
- Cutting larger holes in case sides for air intakes
- Installing dust filters in air intakes
- Painting inside black, just cuz

2 out of 5 eggsBare Bones

Pros: Size is nice for an audio rack. says htpc on the panel below the optical drive bay.

Cons: Very cheap built. Pain in the neck to install drives. Must install in a certain sequence or you have to remove drives and start over. Doesn't fit a 10 inch video card, even though the manufacturer says it does. Will have to cut (heavily modify) the drive caddy to fit my evga gtx 950 card, loosing 2 drive bays in the process, effectively making this case a 2- 3.5 inch bays, 1-2.5 inch bay, 1-5.25 inch bay. Bought this case due to having 5 - 3.5 inch bays. what a disappointment. Air flow is barely adequate. 120mm fan in the side, with the option of 2nd fan on opposite side. However, it appears that the 2nd fan was an afterthought. the openings are very small and likely not able to flow well. has 2 - 80mm fans in the rear of the case. who uses 80mm fans anymore? Fans are very cheap. Power supply only mounts with pulling air from inside the case. Overall build quality reminds me of a cheap $20 case. Easily the worst case I have ever worked with. Save your self some time, money and prevent a major headache by going with a Silverstone case. They are well built and easy to work with. Will not ever purchase a nMedia case again.

Other Thoughts: Using an old P45 C2D e8500 setup as a budget build htpc for my college age son. Will eventually replace this case with a Silverstone case when upgrade the mobo, cpu and memory.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for many HDDs

Pros: Very smart layout for use of 6 HDDs and an SSD all mounted at same time, great room even with my full ATX mobo. Everything was put in in a breeze.

Cons: Only downside is tight spaces and lack of cable management options. Luckily I'm not using all my hard drive bays so I can push cables in there.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case if not a little tight

Pros: Beautifully designed case with nice exterior features.

Included Front USB 3.0/2.0 and Card reader is extremely useful.

Lots of drive bays and options for routing the wires.

Cons: Quality was a little lacking on interior drive mounts.
SSD Mount gets in the way of the primary PCI-X slot on my board which required me to modify the mounting frame.
HD/DVD Mounting frame was bent out of the box with some of the welds having failed. Didn't bring my build to a halt but I had to consider it when modifying the frame.
Modern Graphics Cards will have a problem with this case.
I had to cut out half the drive bays and cut a notch into the Drive Frame to make room for my GTX980 power connectors. This resulted in my being unable to utilize the SSD Mounts.

The optional LCD doesn't have any support and so doesn't function in modern OS's. If you want to have a programmable LCD front display then you will need to consider modifying in another brand other than the recommended or going with a different case.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case with good airflow and wire management. It is extremely unobtrusive sitting under my TV Stand.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Looking HTPC case.

Pros: Looks good next to my receiver.
Fits a mini-atx with plenty of room to spare.
LCD screen opening accepts industry standard 2x20 lcd screen so you are not stuck with only getting the LCD they sell. I was able to build my own lcd solution using an lcd backpack to connect to a usb header on the motherboard and using lcd smartie.

Cons: Fans are not completely silent and can be heard when room is quiet.
Slightly larger than expected but looks good
included screws for hard drives do not fit SSD drive. Not that you need to secure an ssd the same as a HD but it is not as secure as I would like it.

Other Thoughts: When I first read the reviews I was a little concerned when I purchased this case but i figured for the price I could accept the previous reviews listed downfalls as adjust my expectations. When I received the case I was pleasantly surprised how easily things went together. I expected to have to do a lot of fudging to get things working but found that not to be the case. The power supply and blu-ray (LG) fit right in without any problems with the door opening. Perhaps they reworked some of the design on newer boxes based on previous comments.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply put, the worst case I have ever owned

Pros: Obeys laws of thermodynaics.

Has not become sentient and attempted to kill John Connor.

Subject to the laws of gravity

Cons: Where to start?

- It's noisy;
- The cabling arrangement is awkward;
- The drive mounting arrangement is horrible;
- The PSU mounting holes aren't aligned;
- The optical drive slot isn't aligned properly;
- The mounting bay is falling apart; and
- It doesn't close properly.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this case for seven months now, and it's been absolutely atrocious. I got this case for my new HTPC, and it's been a nightmare since day one.

The power supply holes aren't in the correct place, meaning the PSU doesn't mount properly (I can get at most three of the four screws in).

There's something in the assembly and construction of the 120mm fan slots and vents which cause fans to make absurd amounts of noise. I've tried three different case fans, and each one is silent outside the case, but makes a horrible WHIRRRRing noise in the case.

To make things worse, the case has lots of vent slots in the top and the sides, meaning any noise from the CPU fan or rear case fans emit from the case more easily.

The slots to mount the hard drives have the cabling end of the drives face each other (i.e., the front of the drives face the sides of the case, and the backs of the drives face each other). This means that if you get this case, a PSU with detachable cabling is a NECESSITY, not simply preferable.

The detachable mount for the optical drive and internal hard drive bays is poorly constructed, and doesn't properly mount back in place once there's a drive in the bay. I've tried three different optical drives -- all of which work fine in my old SilverStone case -- and none open properly with this case.

Furthermore the top part of the mounting has become detached from the rest of the mounting, meaning that in order to close the case I need to put the top in place, jam a screwdriver down in one of the top air vents and push down, while I simultaneously slide the case top forward into place.

In the past I've purchased Antec and SilverStone cases for my desktop machines and HTPCs. I was distracted by how nice this case looked, the price, and the generally positive reviews. I was mistaken.

Don't buy this case. I've been building my systems from parts for about 20 years now, and I can honestly say that this is the worst case I've ever owned. Spend a few extra bucks for a nicer case with better design and save yourself the hassle of a poorly designed and constructed case.

3 out of 5 eggsA fair priced solution to HTPC

Pros: Not a bad case for a HTPC build, Fits well in my entertainment centre , Full size ATX micro ATX format solid build, pleasing to the eye

Cons: Before you start your build ... make sure you have a good supply of band aids. Inside panels extremely sharp. Removable dvd hdd sub frame twisted. You can not use a fan / heat sink assay any larger than 92mm or it will foul on the ATX power supply. I have a 1/2" gap between the heat sink and the bottom fan of the PS. I found the rosewill 92 mm unit a good fit on a micro ATX socket 775

Other Thoughts: Comes with 2 x 80mm rear fans and 1 x 120mm side fan but theres an option / mounting point to fit another 120 mm fan at your expense should you wish ( i thought that was a bit cheap ) charge another couple of bucks and stick another fan in the box, But for what you pay its worth it

5 out of 5 eggsOver 1 Year, Still Great!

Pros: Durable Construction

Cons: HDD Light port blocked by paint

Other Thoughts: This system has worked well, the power button can be easily activated with my foot so it's easy to turn on if you are by the TV. The case has great airflow when I am using it as a HTPC or gaming on it.

After 1 year, I am very pleased with this product.
