Used this solely as my audio pc. Having a built in fan controller is nice for when you want to keep the fans slow and quiet. The unit itself looks right at home with the rest of your AV components, the one problem is, if you have a closed cabinet or shelf that covers the sides of this unit, you pretty much block all air flow. So please make sure you have a shelf unit or tv console with proper ventilation for the side of this unit. Not an issue for me since I use it on an open stereo stand. But should still be noted.
I wish Fractal made this case a bit taller and managed to add cable management to it. It would pretty much be perfect if it was a tower lying on its side with feet and support braces in the right spots. It doesn't really affect performance for most HTPC set ups, but the case has such great fit and finish that its a shame the inside can't look as nice because of the wiring.
Just a note on the video card situation, i've got a matx board in the case and am able to stick a powercolor 6970 inside without the hard drive bays being a hindrance and i've still got room to run cables, etc in front of the video card.
I don't think I'd be able to crossfire the 6970s (don't know who would want to in an htpc case) there is room between the card and the hard drives (if you mount the hdd facing the other way) but considering the width of the card i dont think 2 could fit
Very nice case. Bought one for myself as well as a second one for a friend. Looks just like a power amp in the multimedia cabinet. Easy to setup but not sure if a CD/DVD Rom would fit in the case under the HD brackets. Also has room for 4 hard drives in the provided brackets.
