Well, you might be limited to mATX cases...
A desktop HTPC case will be difficult to fit a 8800GTS, much less a Hyper TX. Have you considered a regular mATX gaming case, like the Ultra Microfly. A 8800GTS could possibly be squeezed in there, but I'm a bit afraid about the Hyper TX-2. Unfortunately, the only confirmed case of a n 8800GTS fitting is in a $200 case; I just don't have the info on the other cases, but their size differences are not really that much different.
well I have an..
ATX motherboard. That would mean I would need a massive case to hold it with a Hyper TX2?
Would a Silverstone CW01 fit? The dimensions seem to fit it. It is 425mm x 170mm x 443 mm. While the Hyper tx2 is 92mm and the GTS is 268 mm.
I would think any midtower size case should do ok.
and if a horizontal case is what you are after, they have that also. I have a cooler master case that look fairly nice but it is big (midtower).
size isnt a problem.
I guess HTPC wasnt the best choice of words for my components. Are there any cases that you know of that are horizontal. I just want the drive bays to be horizontal as well.
Just browse this search. There are all the 'sideways'/desktop-style computers. What is your budget range?
HTPC is a good word, but you might've left out that it is a ATX motherboard, not a mATX one.
I see cooler master don't make my model anymore, but ..
I'm still unsure about the atx desktops. They dont seem to fit my hyper tx2 cooler. Though, if I see that the case is truly worth it, then I would be willing to pay for it.
Measure the case dimension you have now and compare ..
what you are going to get. You have a server case now or what?
191.5 X 435 X 513.5 mm are my dimensions
for a NZXT HUSH case. The main thing would have to be height in the new case I would have to say. Does the Silverstone LC17C fit a 8800 GTS?
8800 GTS? Height-wise, I see no reason why it wouldn't.
I have a basic 7600GS in it, and there's plenty of room to spare.
Yes, But the 8800 GTS is much longer
than an 7900 gs. I have just decided to tip my case over. Still looks pretty nice. THanks to everyone.
The only problem I see is the dvd drive.
Make sure it can be mounted horizontally or vertically. I am not certain if they are still being manufacture or not now.
Actually I do need a case still.
my case isnt supposed to be horizontal, but it is anyways. I think i would need a case larges and wide and tall. Just something massive, which is hard to find in a HTPC, if only they created something a size of a huge Denon.
Sorry, CPU cooler
I would replace my hyper tx2 cooler to fit my htpc, but I would rather choose a cooler that has a better install than the clips. Such as screws or something. Is there such a cooler? And is artic silver paste necessary?
