What is the most beautiful HTPC case?
#1
What is the most beautiful HTPC case? Do disregard other factor other than looks(mini psu, useless vfd, runs hot, extremely high price).

In my opinion, Moneual 320 is the most beautiful HTPC case.
Others (sorted in rank)

Moneual 312
Origen AE H6
Origen AE M10
Lian Li PC-C36
Silverstone LC-02

What do you think is the most beautiful HTPC case.

Thanks.

I like my Nmedia HTPC-8000

I also have a Silverstone LC-10 from a previous build kicking around

Origen AE H6 Vs Moneual 320 is a head to head for my liking. Perhaps the origen wins because there is more room for ventilation.

That is utterly hideous! Laugh

This thread is moderately useless without pics though, so well done for saving us the effort googling Smile

I suppose you could easily mod any piece of furniture to house a HTPC so it's a good idea.

Designing & building your own is undoubtedly the most beautiful possibility as then you will be sure it is aesthetically pleasing to YOU.

I have a friend with a wood lathe and my wife is a mechanical engineer with access to various metal lathes and milling machines, so I will at some point make use of their skills and build my own case. For now I'm sticking to cheap crappy looking ones Wink

Not beautiful, exactly, but it could be. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article644-page1.html

I'm personally into the industrial look, and really like the simple, small mini-box case.

I happen to agree. That would fit nowhere around my place, nor would i want it to. Tongue

my vote goes to the Origen's, especially the M10. Makes me want to build a Mini-ITX.

I'm really surprised there's no Thermaltake chasis's on that list though.
