'High-end' HTPC cases
 
I am looking for a nice HTPC case to replace my Silverstone LC17B with. And currently I am very disappointed w/ the cases I've found. And the ones I have found I can't find for sale anywhere in Canada. I am looking for cases that have a similar clean look like the following.

Can anyone suggest cases like these or know where I might purchase them in Canada?

Actually I think every one of those has a lower price than the ones I have listed http://smiliesftw.com/x/tongue.gif

I don't like any of them either. They don't have the clean simplistic lines as the ones I have listed. I want something in the line of MurderMod style/quality. But for an HTPC.

I like your taste in cases- I am fed up with my silverstone as well, but I definitely can't justify spending $700 on a case- you could have one custom built for less.

I have the 932 as an HTPC case, and the pics don't show the build quality in them. I can compare the case to Lian-Li in that aspect. It's huge, runs silent and is well ventilated.

This is how it looks like:

And this is the internals while I was doing the assy. The case now houses a 3870X2, with space left.

You don't notice the Denon at first.... outstanding HTPC , even the feet. I like the origen too.
