Home Theater PCs: Trendy Cases In Hi-Fi Design

Assembly Of PC Hardware

Assembling the HTPC is gratifyingly easy. The display has to be installed manually, as does the switch of the HDTV/ PC button. The retainer for both possible drives is held in place by screws in the case. When installing the hard drive and the optical drive, it is advisable to uninstall the latter first, to avoid problems when it is time for cabling. That is where the motherboard and the hard drive will get in each other's way. Special cables that are angled off of the port at 90 degrees are helpful here.

You will have to install and cable the display yourself

Despite the large dimensions, it looks very tight in the interior.
