MP1 MP2 Streacom FC9B case DE
Hi badboyxx, I have just built a TV-Server in a Streacom FC5 EVO case using an Asus H87M-PRO which is not much different.

Installed the NT01 today. Max temps are 63C with both case fans at full speed. (30 minutes of hyperpi running) Idling with MP running it hovers around 40C Despite the 2 case fans it's still more quiet than 1 casefan and the old zalman cooler, so and all in all, I'm reasonably happy with it. Now it's the tv which is the loudest...

Thanks for the tip... I noticed a bit of debris in one of the PSU case screws, so I loosened it and tightened the screw down... now all I hear (with the PC cover off) is the faint whirl of the fans.

You can also hack/mod a case by drilling a small hole and placing an MCE IR receiver behind it.

Hi there, I'm currently searching for the perfect case for my HTPC project. The problem I have is, that my TV-rack is only 44,5cm wide.

Cases without PSU bays but with loads of drive space and expansion slots are well into custom build territory. The closest you'll get off the self are the Fractal Array NAS or some of the Lian-Li cases, which have SFX or ATX PSU bays, but are tiny for what they hold. I use a Fractal Array NAS2 for my TV server - the most TARDIS-like...

I just built a system using this case and I love it so far.... my old case was a Zalman HD 135, which I liked, but the Moncase with its low-profile truly looks like a high-end CE DVD player that doesn't stand out among the other HT devices on the TV stand.

CPU Cooler: I use Scythe SCKZT-1000. Silent. PSU: I have an EarthWatts Green EA-380D by Antec. I use it because the fanless Seasonic 400W I bought was too deep in conjunction with my BD-ROM to fit in the case. The Antec not silent, but it is very quiet. The Seasonic is now in another CPU built and is doing well. If space isn't an...
