Most Critical Review

Great case, but many fitment issues

Thermaltake Silver 0.8 mm SECC Chassis Mozart Sx VC7001SNS ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Thermaltake Silver 0.8 mm SECC Chassis Mozart Sx VC7001SNS ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Case is very well built and looks very good with the rest of the home theater setup. Fans are a bit loud, but it fits standard ATX mainboards and standard PSUs.

Cons: The cd latch is very tricky it often gets stuck open, the fans are a bit loud for an htpc, there is only one optical disk slot, only three pci ports and the riser is very difficult to use. Also, it is very difficult to find a decent CPU cooler to fit this case and double slot video cards are out of the question. my video card with passive cooling did not fit at all, as the copper piping extended beyond the case walls. Lots of fitment issues overall, and the remote feels a bit cheap.

Overall Review: Its an allright case, but I really expected more from thermaltake.

It works, what more can you ask for?

Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B  3 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler
Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B 3 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

Pros: Quiet, cools very well

Cons: bearing may start to wear out after 1 year

Overall Review: I have two of these in two different computers now, they are great fans and i have had no real problems with it. The one that is a year old(not this new revision B) started making a it of noise for the first few seconds every time i turn the computer on, but then it goes back to being quiet. No biggie. Great bang for the buck, fits in most HTPC cases - it is fairly wide(compared to stock cooler), so make sure you have enough room to clear your optical drives and vid cards
