Silverstone make some of the best compact PC solutions on the market and while they make a wide range of HTPC chassis, they are certainly not tied down to one thing. The DS380 (pictured above) is a mixture of a HTPC mini-ITX chassis, but it features 8 SAS/SATA hot swap bays that can be accessed from a key lock front panel, making this idea for a NAS based system. Those with extensive home networking requirements will love this.
The HTPC market is as popular as ever and Silverstone seem to have a solution for every setup, from TV wall mounts, multi monitor swing brackets, there are 11 HTPC cases in this picture and many more out of shot. each one a different shape and size that will cater to just about any system configuration from silent running low power systems to high end gaming rigs.
For those that want their HTPC to be more suited to music, Silverstone now also produce these gorgeous headphone apllifiers, they look great but I personally can’t wait to really get stuck in and test these in a more suitable environment, aka not at a noisy trade show.
Silverstone even have a new Raven themed HTPC case and while it’s not going to be to every ones taste I rather like it, it makes a nice change from the usual flat fronted HTPC boxes.
It’s also quite large, as you can see, the mini-ITX board takes up about 1/4 of the chassis, leaving plenty of room for storage solutions and a full size ATX PSU.
