This is it folks. This is the case that we have been waiting for to build the HTPC of the next five years. There are no negatives here. It is completely fanless (read silent), yet can handle a modern Intel DG45FC mainboard with a 3GHz dual core processor and decent video card. I am convinced that a machine built on this can can fulfill all of your xbmc, mythfrontend, windows mce, blue ray playing, and gaming needs. There is nothing that the right setup in this case would not be able to handle in your living room, silently.
