HTPC 8000

The First Wooden HTPC Case Ever!

Editor's Choice Awarded HTPC Case

HTPC 8000

nMediaPC is proud to introduce the first wooden HTPC Case. The classic looking HTPC 8000 case will not only meet your HTPC needs, but with its smart internal design it can easily surpass any gamer's expectations as well.

The new HTPC 8000 wooden case is a state-of-the-art ATX case for users of different interests. It supports full ATX motherboards, ATX PSUs, and all full-length video cards. It's built with one 140mm case fan to make your build a completely silent system. Direct air flow design from front to back improves the cooling performance significantly. Not enough? Feel free to add two 92mm fans in the front behind the panel.

Beyond the superior functions offered above, the classic style of this HTPC will capture every eye and impress your guests with your one-of-a-kind powerful home theater system.

HTPC 8000
  • Supports ATX power supplies
  • Supports ATX, Micro-ATX, DTX, and Mini-ITX motherboards
  • Four 3.5in. internal bays for media data
  • Easy up-front access digital connection interfaces
  • HD Audio; SDHC 2.0 Card Reader; USB 2.0 x 2
  • SupportS full height and length PCI cards
  • Stylish antique redwood design
  • Compact size and feel
  • Optional upgrade on 20 x 2 programmable MCE LCD module
  • Innovative architecture makes your installation easy
  • Quiet as ever!

nMedia is the first company to deliver a mass-produced wooden case to our labs. A mechanically-distressed finish adds to the HTPC 8000's nostalgic radio look, with reduced production costs allowing for a mass-market-friendly $120 Web price.

HTPC 8000

A short 14.4in. depth allows the unit to sit on narrower shelves and tables compared to a standard hi-fi-style case, and its dimensions accurately replicate the scale of the old radios it resembles. Likewise, its 19.7in. width and 11.0in. height will look great anywhere!

Simulated speaker holes at the front offer intake ventilation, while a simulated radio-tuning indicator hides a mount for a digital-display panel, such as the nMedia part sold here. The simulated knob is a stylish power button.

HTPC 8000

Casual glances may not reveal the DVD cover or button, but there's nothing retro about the case's memory card reader or front panel USB, eSATA, and FireWire ports. Front-panel microphone and headphone mini-jacks are also of the handy, non-retro variety.

HTPC 8000

Anyone who does not get close enough to the front panel to notice the modern conveniences probably won't notice the clever Phillips #3 top screws, which detract slightly from an otherwise stylish panel.

HTPC 8000

A 140mm low-speed fan draws warm air out the back. Reportedly manufactured by Dong Guan Hengli Hongsheng Electronics Factory (UL E225507), this 0.20A 140mm fan is unlisted at the manufacturer's site and its A14025L12S part number isn't carried by other suppliers.

HTPC 8000

A rack six inches above the motherboard supports four 3.5in. hard drives and one 5.25in. optical drive. There's enough room beneath it for most CPU coolers, except for 120mm tower-design coolers.

HTPC 8000

A card-reader and front-port connectors reside under the drive rack.

HTPC 8000

The HTPC 8000 supports full ATX and micro-ATX motherboards, with just enough room in front to support long graphics cards (such as the GeForce GTX 285) in six of its seven expansion slots.

4 out of 5 eggsWood and PLASTIC

Pros: -Wood looks great.
-Plenty of space inside.
-Onboard fan and filtered "speaker" ventilation slots provide ample airflow.

Cons: -The front panel is made of PLASTIC, not steel.
-The wiring and power switch on the front panel are sub-par quality, and it can be difficult to get the power button to "catch" when cold booting.
-Plugging/unplugging front USB, Firewire, or SD feels fragile, like the faceplate might just break at any second.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case for its aesthetics, and it really does look fantastic in my entertainment center. But the poor build quality on all of the electronic components is a big disappointment.

I leave this PC on all the time as a media/gaming machine, but on the few occasions when I've had to turn it off and manually turn it back on via the power button, it always makes me mash and wiggle it before finally powering up, which is disconcerting.

When it comes time to upgrade this PC with some new hardware, I don't know if I'll keep the case. Ideally, I would like to find a replacement faceplate somewhere with better build quality and just swap it in during the upgrade process.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate from first impressions

Pros: Well the system is set up and installing Windows now. The install was certainly not the easiest I've ever done, but I was able to get everything together. Even after 10 years of buying from Newegg, I have never had to return anything or had a single item that didn't work. See my "Other Thoughts" below for some details. But WOW this case looks nice. It looks like an old radio, even with the blue power LED on front. Aside from that, there's not really anything that gives it away at a distance. A trained eye will recognize the pink/green audio in/out on the front panel, but it looks very nice.

Windows is just finishing up the install. Overall the build was not easy but no HTPC build ever is, and if you do things correctly you'll find yourself with a beautiful, eye-catching HTPC.

Cons: Unlike many others, I was able to get the DVD drive to line up without issue. However, I do have one tiny (and easily solvable) issue: when trying to retract the DVD drive, it gets stuck every time on the internal buffers/whatever they're called. There's bits of plastic on the inside to prevent the DVD door from hitting the cover directly, and to help guide it, but they catch on the DVD drive each and every time. I can simply sand them down or find a way to avoid it. Not enough of an issue for me to take off an egg, and I expected issues with this case given the other reviews. But ultimately I am very, very satisfied with it.

Other Thoughts: Some thoughts for others as they build inside this case:

1. Remove the ventilation panel. It is difficult/impossible to install anything in the expansion slots with the ventilation panel in place. It's 2 easy to remove screws to remove the panel and it's easy as can be to install expansion cards (video cards, network adapters, etc).

2. Connect the power cables to the PSU before anything else if you're using a modular PSU (once it's in the case, that is). It's cramped in there once the HDD/DVD bay goes in, so make sure you don't need access below.

3. Cable management is easier than I thought it would be, however I did use a modular PSU and fairly light-weight parts that didn't need a lot of cabling, so it was straight forward enough.

4. Ensure that your setup has space for this case - it is VERY large and VERY heavy. Measure it first!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst impressions

Pros: First let me say that I have had this case for 24 hours and have not yet received the rest of my components, so I can not attest to the functionality of the case. However, the case itself is decently constructed. It's made of real wood and the design is very aesthetically pleasing. Internally, there's not much to see aside from the metal internals and the fan on the rear of the case. The hard drive bay is very uniquely designed and while it could be better it would seem to work well.

Cons: The case is not perfect, and it seems that nMedia should probably work a bit more on their quality control - although, being the only game in town for a wooden PC case, there's not exactly any competition for that particular niche, and thus they may see no reason to invest more in quality control. I did have a few screws missing from the internals (easily replaced by regular wood screws) and it does seem that it would be easy to mis-align the HDD bay with the DVD door on the front panel. However, there is absolutely nothing stopping you from lining it up yourself and then screwing it into place, regardless of how their screws are originally positioned.

Because nMedia decided not to use metal threads for their screws, you'll get the usual problems with woodworking: sawdust being one, and the fact that you must work a bit harder to get into your system than with other cases. Build it right and you shouldn't have to get back in there, though.

Other Thoughts: The case is beautiful, but if you're reading the reviews you probably already knew that. I would not recommend this case for a first-time builder, but someone that just wants to add a nice HTPC to their home set up who has some experience working with PCs and is comfortable getting into this adventure should definitely consider it. I love the idea of an HTPC but hate the look of the standard receiver/DVD player-replacement case designs. This shouldn't try to look like something that's ugly in the first place; it should try to look nice, and it does.

I'll update my review upon completion of my build.

5 out of 5 eggspretty

Pros: Wife doesn't hate it. Lots of room inside for ATX board and stuff.

Cons: still a computer case. I love making computers, this looks like a piece of furniture.

Other Thoughts: It helped me refurb an old system that I had upgraded with an SSD & windows 8 & new monitor & wireless keyboard & wireless mouse & some art doing stuff that one of my daughters loves to use to make pictures

5 out of 5 eggsFine Furniture

Pros: Fine looking addition to the living room.
visitors to our home do not realize it is a computer, but often ask if it is an antique radio.
Good airflow.
I was initially concerned that the heat and airflow from the computer components may cause cracking of the wood panels, but after 2+ years this is not an issue.

Cons: somewhat complex to assemble computer components, but lots of room.

Other Thoughts: The faux speaker grills on the front make great dust filters. I suggest running your vacuum over them when cleaning the room.

5 out of 5 eggsSOLID CASE

Pros: Fair price for a wood case, Was pleased it came with USB3 port and a USB2 port on the front of the case. The case was extremely well packed, and came with no damage. The issues with the door button on the DVD player must have been fixed, as well as the door opens smoothly and closes smoothly. The case is just big enough to fit all my parts with a little room for cable management. I read the reviews for this case and was expecting some assembly issues, but they didn't happen. Seems like they fixed the issues that were brought up before. With as good a cable management as I could do the case seems to have good airflow. The stock fan seems to be doing fine running quietly.

Cons: Not any but a few suggestions. I would have liked 2 USB3 ports on the front and a 3rd USB2 port to go with the card reader. The drive bay is still attached with wood screws, would have been nicer with threaded inserts, but this case isn't meant to be taken apart often so I think it will be OK. Last nit is the depth is closer to 14 inches and not 11, 11 inches is the dimension from back to the corner where it angles out.

Other Thoughts: I am glad I bought this case as it has met my expectations, and looks good in the living room. Like others have mentioned it has a high wife approval rating.

1 out of 5 eggsCheaply Made

Pros: Wooden Case - this is the only wooden case I could find. My sister wanted me to build her something that didn't look so black and retangular. She wanted something to sit on top of a shelf. The wood was good and think, the finish seems well done.

Lots of Room - with a Micro ATX motherboard, there is a ton of room in the case. No problem fitting 700w modular power supply.

Motherboard mounted firmly on the bottom, plenty of offset screws included.

Cable management is acceptable since there is plenty of room with modular power supply and micro atx motherboard. They include a "sticky" cable holder you put on the inside of the case and can loop them through. I expect over time this will fall off.

Cons: Cheap metal parts. Be prepared, the wood might be nice, but the metal is cheap and thin. The first thing that happened as I'm putting this together is a screw broke off in my SSD. The metal frame you put the hard drives, ssd and optical drive in, the screw holes do not line up properly.

You have to mount your 3.5" hard drive upside down. I was only able to get 2 screws in. When I went to install my SSD, the holes did not line up left to right. The screw snapped down inside the SSD drive without me putting much pressure on it at all. I was able to jimmy the drive sideways and get only 2 screws to fit in the SSD, one in front right, one in back left.

The back of the computer, you have to pull two screws out and remove a plastic piece to get a graphics card to insert. The slots on the back are the old tab style, where you use a phillips head screw driver and bend back/forth until they break loose.

Other Thoughts: I'm dreading turning this on. It only has one fan and no where for the power supply airflow to vent out of. There are small intake airports on either side of the front 5 1/4" bay.

I'm expecting the case to run hot, but hoping it won't.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat idea, product is ify

Pros: great look, more than enough hardware, solid and heavy

Cons: didn't receive all the gear it quoted in the description, and in the process of shipping one corner was smashed in although there was no damage to the exterior of the box?

Other Thoughts: just want the LED display they said came with it, its a pain to find one to fit at this point!
