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. Most of the cases that would fit my need are around 42-44cm wide, some with fans on the side.
Something like this: http://geizhals.at/de/815272

I somehow worry that if I put a 43cm wide case in the rack it'll constantly up, but i've no real experience with it.
There would be enough space over the case, perhaps that would help with the heat.

I'm not planning to build a gaming system anyway, just a multimedia htpc with an i3 Ivy Bridge and a picoPSU, so no real threat to extreme temperatures.

Any clues?
