Hello there, my amplifier is 171 mm (H): 435 mm (W): 393 mm (D) and I am looking for a HTPC case which is a similar width and depth to fit in an AV rack I am going to make in a space in the lounge.

The catch is that I am looking to use existing hardware and the hardware is rather large, as this will be used for gaming as well.

Existing case and hardware:

Manufacturer:
Cooler Master
Motherboard Form Factor:
ATX
Micro ATX
Front/ Side/ Top Panel:
1 x Headphone
1 x Mic In
2 x USB 2.0
1 x eSata
1 x IEEE 1394
Drive Bays:
5 x 3.5" Internal
2 x 5.25" External
Expansion Slots:
7
Fan Bays:
5 x 120mm
2 x 140mm
Window:
Yes
Power Supply Form Factor:
ATX
CPU Cooler Dimensions:
"Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (Socket 1155)
79.7 x 158.5 x 120 mm (WxHxD mm)"
VGA Card Length:
"MSI ATI Radeon HD 6950 OC Twin FrozR III Power Edition 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express
116 x 39 x 270 mm (WxHxD mm) Double slot"
Dimensions:
213 x 482 x 525 mm (WxHxD mm)
Colour:
Black

What cases have space for two optical drives, a card reader on the front, which might accept the CPU cooler whilst accommodating all the other hardware?

Would Silverstone LaScala LC17 Rackmount be a contender?

If so, I would expect to also purchase the following:


  • A new CPU cooler because my existing one is massive and likely will not fit in the case with all my other required hardware, I was thinking of something like Prolimatech 48 CPU Cooler 92mm, but I cannot find another suitable substitute as this one is not in stock anywhere now (please advise)
