This is my first HTPC build. I want it small and all in one - the power supply is in case, itx format, the MB have 2 HDMI - use for two LCD TV, the power cord has cut-off switch.
This case is Spire PowerCube SPM210B, the iron construction is the same as in Apex MI-008 or as Thermaltake Element Q case only the plastic front and power supply are different. The case has one 120 mm hole on top for CPU cooler and one 70 mm hole bottom for PSU fan. Two holes are on back of case for the 60 mm fans. I want a hole on the side for the Arctic 90mm fan, but the went hole are aesthetical as an hole.
The power supply (this fan is very noisy), two back fan and a side fan are controlled with Akasa fan control which is modded - the usb ports are file down. I use a 5,25 reduction for slim DVD, Axago card reader (is short cut), behind the card reader is Axago reduction 2x 2,5" to 3,5" for HDD.
This modded case support 4 x 2,5" HDD + slim DVD or 2 x 2,5" HDD + 1 x 3,5 HDD (used rubber stabilizer from scythe HDD stabilizer) + slim DVD and the CPU cooler can be max 110 mm high. The front plastic cover is modded - the dvd hole is increased for full 5,25 support, and the blue power light shine aboard. The PC is very quiet thank the fan control.
