That is just audio/video equipment though. I don't see anything about HTPC cases.

However I want an HTPC that will make high end audio equipment like what they sell.

MUSE PC-C33

I know you said not Moneual, but this one? Moneual MONOCASO 312 HTPC Case Black

Or this? PicoCool - Athena Multimedia Sofa with an integrated computer

But no the X2000 is way too big to sit in an audio/video rack. Same w/ the V351.

That Moneual looks alright, but way to small. I want something that I can watercool w/ at least a 2x80mm radiator or a 120mm radiator.

I am leaning very heavily towards the Luxa2 LM300 if I can find one anywhere.

Hmm. Your requirements set the bar quite high, limiting the number of possibilities. But once you know exactly what you want, it's only a matter of finding it.

External rads? I water-cooled my server in a 2U rackmount case easily with dual 90* barbs per block.

edit: External rads... mod a Lili Xbox case until it's silent? I used Koolance quick disconnects on the tubing to allow removal of the case without removing any of the wc components (res, pump, rad).

have you ever expect something else with Lowfat

I think it can be more easy if you post a pics of the surround where you want to put it , I means the component, to give us an idea of what to match with.

And we know you are a dam good photographer

My HTPC won't have any hard drives So I don't really think I need a 3U case

Yes I have very high requirements. Nearly too high. At least w/ standard PC cases you can almost always find a case that will fit your needs. W/ HTPC cases there isn't much of a high end selection at all.

I am not a fan of external radiators at all. I even don't like having radiators having off the back of the case. I am one picky dood.
