“Thermaltake took a long look at what a Home Theater PC needs and provides everything that one would want and need to make a full-fledged HTPC. Just provide the motherboard, the CPU, the memory the drives and the video card and you are good to go. The DH-101 is meant for a Digital Home user and is easy to install and use. The unit is in full-time use at Doc’s house as his Blu Ray Disc or HD-DVD player can accommodate anything a regular PC can. The HD 2900XT is a rather long video card and fit into the case without problems. If you are looking for a fully featured HTPC case with plenty of airflow and room for expansion this is the case for you. An excellent design and an excellent unit for the Media PC.”
