The SilverStone Grandia GD07 HTPC Case is a monster case which is perfect for a hardcore gamer. It fits video cards that are up to 13.6 inches in length, has lots of fans, plenty of drive bays, tons of room to work, stylish and has excellent build quality. If you're in the market for a large HTPC case at a reasonable price but still has lots of features, this is it.

I like the lockable front and button. Its also good to see all those dust filters

Thanks for the very informative review.

I do think however that a larger opening on the top would've helped more with the hot air being removed.

The lock ruins the look of the case and in a HTPC case needs a remote with a IR receiver and maybe a display imho. I also think the front USB and audio should be accessible without flipping down the front panel and its just to big(sure its a Grandia but still) for a HTPC case. i mean how will buy an E-ATX motherboard for there HTPC ?

I don't see this becoming the a hit in the HTPC market...

Hard to find anything good about this case as an HTPC

Needs work

SilverStone has many HTPC cases, so I'm sure you could find one that best suits your needs. I'll be reviewing the GD08 soon.
