looking for case sugestions for an HTPC.
I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A STANDARD HTPC CASE

heres the list of wants in no paticular order.

mATX
tower
small, half height expansion slots are an option, but not a plus
spots for 2+ HDDs
Kensington lock slot - a strong want
comes with a decent 80plus PSU and/or uses standard ATX power suplies.
black or at least will look good with a black optical drive
not made in China
sturdy
easy to work on/in
cheaper is better, but will pay more for quality. I'd go up to $200 shipped for case and PSU that was perfect. I'd prefer to pay about $100
noise isn't a huge deal, it will be near my aquariums

Leaning toward an Antec Minuete or a HEC compucase 7k

Two 120 mm fans , room for even the largest gfx card

Take the rear fan out b4 you install the mb !
