Pros: Great quality, good connectors, consistent power output. 80 PLUS Gold is a must for a HTPC. Heavy toroid and huge capacitors = a happily powered PC
Cons: Corsair customer service needs some work. I submitted my rebate very timely, and 2 months later I still have not received it in the mail; I ordered the PSU on 4/7/2015, and now its almost July. Corsair's typical response has been that 'it will arrive in 2-3 weeks.'
Other Thoughts: Just don't offer the rebate if you do not intend to honor it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel ML04B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Looks incredible, and really this is an important quality in a HTPC case
Surprising cable management ability
Fits a ATX PSU
Front panel USB 3.0
Reasonable price (though the bigger cases are cheaper?)
Cons: One front panel USB 3.0 cable harness came damaged, inserting a USB drive pushes the port out, which looks pretty ugly. Not enough to send the case back, but it is pretty disappointing.
Inside the case, some of the parts and painting look a little hasty. The drive cage, for instance, has some machining marks that look like could run up against some drives given some unlucky mounting.
There also is no motherboard layout map that is so common in tower cases.
Other Thoughts: All in all, a great HTPC case, definitely just make sure to really check it over before you start building. The instructions, also, are useless.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks and operates well
Cons: Does not fit in Cooler Master tool-less case. Be warned!READ FULL REVIEW
