Perfect Home Theater Ultra Low-Profile Aluminum HTPC Case Review
Wed Nov 12, 2014 | 1:12P | PermaLink BY: Max Page
Essentially, all enclosures are about compromise. Even a cost-no-object build is going to have the side effect of (typically) larger size and high energy usage. If that is not of concern for the end user, then for them it truly is a no compromise result. However, when the primary considerations are small size and silent operation (crucial for an HTPC build) then the tradeoffs become more problematic. For instance for the thinnest enclosures there are significant tradeoffs in CPU cooling due to height and often width limitations of the enclosure. Intel has created a blower style cooler for the thin mini-ITX platform, but not every enclosure will have the lateral room required for the Intel design."
