So I finally got my case in today. Built it and got it running in a couple of hours tops. Very happy with it so far. Sorry for the blurry images. I'm using a USB bracket inside the case to save back USB ports, giving me internal unifed adapter and bluetooth. Works great. I replaced the stock 120mm fans with enermax fans as I didn't want the blue glow. Right now I use a Logitech Performance MX mouse, Apple Bluetooth keyboard (will be replacing with Logitech 340 unified), and Mobile Mouse on iphone to control system. I also have a usb IR sensor from a MCE remote so my harmony remote works too.

What do you think?

I have a 18.1 cubic foot fridge for beer/cola/coolers in the next room, just 15 feet away.

I have a 35 foot hdmi running up the inside of the wall and inside the ceiling. This was a new construction so all wiring was done in the walls, which is nice.

Great project! Keep us updated about your new keyboard choice! I'm looking for feedback of a good way to do some pleasant HTPC gaming (in my case to play the witcher)

Nice build. What was the total cost of the PC on its own?

Would there be room in that case for a full height, full length video card?

My total cost was around $780, the case alone was $205 though. Plus I already had Keyboard, mouse, Windows and the 1TB HDD that isn't included in the cost. Total would be around $1000 if I had to buy those things.

CPU - $215
MB - $130
Case - $160
DVD-RW - $18
RAM - $45
Power Supply - $70
Bluetooth adapter - $10
3 120mm fans - $18

Plus shipping and taxes.

The case can hold a 13.5" long graphics card is the lower drive bay is removed. 9.25" is the drive bay is installed. I left the drive bay out of my build since the upper tray hold three hard drives and I'm only using one.

Easily the nicest mATX case I've ever worked with.
