Redefining the styling direction of a genre once again, SiverStone LC13-E can be seen as an impressive fascia that is both beautiful and purposeful. Behind it, is a chassis offering an extensive array of hard drive / optical drive configuration and excellent cooling characteristic. Among cases that are built on compromises, the LC13 is the first choice for those who need the most freedom with their HTPC.
Magnificent front panel design Numerous drive configurations possible Next generation cooling performance Highly compatible chassis layout

The case looks even better in my living room than in the pictures, and it works great - the front opens and closes quietly and smoothly, all the parts inside work ok. The manual is quite useless - it gives you the general idea but it seems translated online and the pictures are small and vague. I still don't know what the last part, the case lock, is or how it gets installed. As it is not essential, I don't care either. The only problem I had was with the too short wires coming out of the power supply. I had to install the power supply upside down to bring the cables a bit closer. Truly, it is the cheapest power supply money can buy, until I can get a silent one - later. Even so, I had to route the CPU power connector under the video card (...) and it is pretty tight. The other cables are ok. I did not have any problems installing the other parts, I do have a small video card (5450 passive) and it did not disagree with the hard drive. The setup for now is: 400W power, p5ld2 mb, pentium E2160, 4GB DDR2/667, Radeon 5450 passive, 120 GB PATA HD, BD reader. Right now, the noisiest part is obviously the power supply. And another thing: I tried to fit a fan on the side of case, the square hole next to the CPU (and the other 2 fans the case came with). The motherboard is very close to the case panel though and I could not get the fan in there without touching the mb. Maybe I should have installed it in front of the hard drive bay... With only one hard drive I don't think it needs it. I give it 5 starts even with the little problems: cable lengths, unhelpful manual,... In the end, the price was very good and I would buy this case again any time.
Overall the case seems nice, the front panel opens and closes well, and I was able to fit everything in except my hard drives. If I allow them to loosely float around in my case, occupying the vacant 5.25 and other bays, I can use *both* my video card *and* have a hard drive, all at the same time, but I admit this is less than ideal. Let's just hope I remember and keep perfect balance whenever I move my case in the future.
Overall, i love this case-it looks great in a component rack and isn't as distracting as many of the fancier cases out there. Drive installation can be tricky when trying to align the blanks with each other and depending on your mobo layout, wiring and cables could get a little tight.
Overall, this is a great HTPC case. I've had for a little over a month and I love it. The install was a bit tricky because the mobo barely fits in there. Also, the RAM slots are right next to the DVD driv, so it can be a little tricky to get the drive in and out (or even the RAM modules, you have to unplug the SATA cable).
