SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum front panel, 0.8 mm SECC body Lascala Series LC17-B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a great case for a HDPC or Music studio scenario. It is very well built, very clean design and has plenty of front panel ports. You'll need additional brackets to rack mount it. I choose to use a retractable shelf so I can easily pull out the system to work on it.

The dual 80mm fans are pretty quiet. There is an addition 120mm fan port in case you want to use a more quiet 120mm fan or need extra cooling.

Due to the smaller form factor, the optical drives can overhang and compete for space near the MBO power connector. A little tricky with bulky cables.

Cons: None.

Western Digital Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Very nice drive. It is very quiet and fast. Quiet was the main design goal for this build and this drive delivers.

Cons: None.

Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 1156 95W BX80605I7870 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very happy with this purchase. It is very fast and runs cooler with the addition of a SCYTHE SCSMZ-2000 RT CPU cooler. The original fan is much louder, too.

Cons: I don't like the push pin method for attaching the CPU Cooler. Very difficult to access with an extra wide CPU cooler. The MBO heat sinks also get in the way of being able to push down directly and turn them.
- I recommend install CPU & Cooler with MBO out of the case to give you more room to work and be able to confirm the pins are fully set. The only way to confirm is to inspect them from the bottom of the MBO.
