excellent case

Pros: i'm using this case and while everything is tight. you can fit everything in it as advertised. in my lc-16 there are 7 hard drives, 1 bluray drive, a large powersupply (rocketfish 700w i believe), 1 sapphire 4670, 2 hauppauge hvr-2250s, an avermedia m780, an avermedia hd dvr, an encore wireless n card, an asus atx motherboard, and a 120mm aftermarket zalman cpu fan.

Cons: should have come with the HD fans for the price. but i knew they didn't come with it when i ordered it. best case i've ever owned.

Other Thoughts: also for the creative, there are two slots under the bottom hard drives that are too small for 3.5" drives large enough for a 2.5" ssd or some usb stuff which is what's in mine.

A great HTPC case, but it won't hold 6 drives

Pros: Absolutely beautiful case sitting in the rack, matches quite well with my Onkyo receiver. The DVD door actually works, and is even spring loaded. The stock rear fans are decent.

Cons: Knocking off an egg for misleading specs. There is simply no way you'd get 6 hard drives in this thing. It has 2 hard drive cages, each with 3 slots. (which is where they get the 6) But the drives hang out over the motherboard. (even a Micro-ATX) So you lose the bottom slot on each cage to the motherboard, and if you have memory with a tall heat spreader, you lose the middle slot on the right.

Other Thoughts: For $125-$150, this case would be a good deal. But I just don't think its worth the $250 plus shipping. And at that price, they really should have included the hard drive fans.

Ignore Chip below, he doesn't own one of these

Pros: Best looking case on the market. Can hold many hard drives. Imon software can give you MCE functionality even though you're running a basic home version of Windows. Imon remote is nice looking, has mouse functionality. Takes an ATX MB.

Cons: Does not fit LG HD-DVD/Blu-Ray combo drive - the open button does not align properly and the drive is nearly impossible to install so that the drawer does not stick or get blocked on the edge of the facia instead of pushing the faceplate slot out. The VFD digital display has very squirrely connections and can disconnect if you aren't very careful installing the optical drive above it. Imon remote does not control all functions. Won't take a gaming-sized video card - a Radeon 4650/4670 is as powerful of a card as you can install in this case until they come out with a more powerful replacement for it.

Other Thoughts: Chip above does not actually own one of these cases and is lying about it. My LG combo drive does not fit in the case properly and it is not a question of installation error but rather design of the case. I can just barely fit a PowerColor Radeon HD 4650 fanless video card into the case - there is no way on earth that he has a 4870 in this case. In my gaming/HTPC rig I have a 4850, which is 2" longer than my 4650 and it is too long by about 1.5" to fit in this Silverstone case. Overally, the functionality of this case is a big letdown, given how sharp it is and how

Don't listen to the whiners...

Pros: Great looks and matches well with your audio components!
Remote (with updated IMon HD software online).
Don't need Windows MCE.
MSI R4870 1 Gb dvi graphics card works perfectly & quietly!
LG HD DVD\BluRay player or burner fits right in.
Well made http metal case for standard atx mboards.

Cons: Cheezy feeling volume knob - not worth deducting an egg.
Fans are too noisy! Buy 4 SilenX 11db fans!
Instructions leave a little to be desired, but this is not a hard install, just take your time!

Other Thoughts: I build https for buyers and I really like this case!

All https have some particular limitations, research your purchase!!!

Read the specs or any of the reviews on the web!!! FULL SIZE GRAPHICS CARDS (length wise) DONT WORK! Why would you not research an expensive case purchase!!!

I've never hear any Seagate or WD harddrives make a sound in this case and I usually sit right next to it, you can't hear your hard drives across the room! Replace the fans w/ 4 SilenX 11 db fans, watch the size (2-80mm and 2-90mm)!!!

I don't suggest spending $500 or more on a case with an LCD screen. I have bought several, and I am sitting next to one now, but I am not that impressed for $200-300 more. If you've got it, do it but research the purchase and expect to replace those fans too!!!

1/ 5

Pros: Good looking case. Many people have commented "where the computer?" thinking that this was an amp or something. Case fans were not loud when controlled by my motherboard. VFD display is nice.

Cons: Hard drive mounting is a joke. No rubber grommets or anything, so my hard drives were WAY loud. The mounting seemed to actually amplify their sound, it was quieter with them sitting on top of the case. This of course made the case unusable as an HTPC so I sold it after a frustrating year of ownership.

Other Thoughts: Would be alright if you used a SSD to eliminate noise. But even the quietest systems make noise which is not pleasant in a theater room. I would up mounting a noisy computer outside the room and running a long usb and hdmi cable. Now my theater is silent and I didn't need a $300 case...

Great looking case, best of class

Pros: Looks great, just like my Onkyo audio receiver
Although it's not advertised, it did come with a universal card reader.
Very sturdy construction
The DVD and card reader covers work very well and look seamless
The Imon and display software were easy to setup, although I'd recommend setting it up with the MCE remote from the start. It's really cool to see the system status, equalizer or program info on the front LED.

Cons: Of course, the space limitation for the graphics card. I used a sapphire 4670 and it fit fine. Anything more advanced probably won't fit.
The fans are loud. I'll definitely replace them.
The remote/imon software combination leaves much to be desired. Do yourself a favor and just buy an MCE remote or program your harmony.
The case is slightly larger than an Onkyo 606 audio receiver and there is little space for the cables. If you're installing 4-6 harddrives you'll be even more limited on space. The bottom 3.5 inch spots for the hard drives will also probably be in the way of your memory or other wires.
As other reviewers mentioned, the blue power light on the front is very bright, especially in a dark room. To remedy this, I'd recommend buying some ebony/black wood putty and fill in the hole. This will totally eliminate the light and the putty fits in with the gloss of the front of the case. I thought about using wax like another reviewer but think the putty looks great.

Amazing

Pros: Nice Finish
Functional Remote
VFD Display
Media Buttons on case
6 internal 3.5" bays (7 with a converter from 5.25")
Decent airflow
Quiet. with both 80mm fans at 100%, they're still quieter than my ZALMAN 9500 92mm CPU cooler. They move a good amount of air too.

Cons: The media buttons and knob on the front feel a bit cheap. I would have liked to see them made out of a more heavy plastic than they are. Random, but the manual was printed on REALLY nice paper... maybe print that on cheap paper and improve the media buttons? HA!

I could see it being tight for cable management with 6 hard drives, and a full ATX motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case along with a bare bones kit (however there was a mail in rebate on the case elsewhere so I didn't buy from Newegg. Wish I would have, since it got delayed in shipping for 3 days)

The ZALMAN 9500 92mm CPU cooler DOES fit, with where my processor is, and has about a quarter inch of clearance to the top of the case.

I mounted my Power supply "upside down" since the option was there, so that my power supply would help draw air out of the case as well.

With 6 hard drives in here, you may need to be mindful of cable management, and motherboard connection locations. I *almost* had an issue with my board in that the RAM got close to the back of some of my hard drives on the left side.

I have a Micro-ATX board in here, and the space isn't terrible. If you're not planning on using all the 3.5" bays, try leaving empty space on the right side (when looking from the back of the case) to hide PSU cables.

Excellent case, remote is nice, and can be used as a mouse

LC16B

Pros: Great Case, I have had it over a year and have already updated it. My new setup is using a full atx board w/ a MSI 8600 GTS Diamond Video Card, it wouldn't work w/ my original DVD Burner but I used a Samsung SATA w/ lightscribe and it has a very short body so it works, even with the PCI power connection. I am using a Modular Power Supply and 3 HDD's and the wiring is only tight right at the back of the power supply. you'll have to take it apart a couple times for the first build but once you do it it gets alot easier.

Cons: the knob and media buttons are a little cheap feeling but I never use them anyway.

Other Thoughts: I wish Silverstone would update the equalized to work in all modes instead of just with certain things.
