nMediaPC offers to HTPC enthusiasts and professional installers absolute special case – HTPC 8000. It’s completely wooden. Just has a metal plate on the front. The case is suitable for ATX and Micro ATX motherboards and offers four 3.5″ and one 5.25” bays. Up to seven full size expansion cards can be installed in the HTPC 8000. To chill equipment inside it’s used 140mm case fan. The front panel hosts optical drive door, VFD display (optional), e-SATA, HD Audio, couple USB ports and card reader. And, thank goodness, there is no any blinding lights there!
The HTPC 8000 is too big to fit into ordinary A/V stand – 500mm(W) X 365mm(H) X 280mm(D). But the stylish antique red wood design helps to integrate it into your interior. I’d like to mention that case is not a concept for some exhibition. You can buy it just for $120! Moreover, the wooden case makes less noise than ordinary metal one.
Not sure that I’d buy the wooden HTPC 8000. But it can be right choice for some non hi-tech interiors.
