    Hi All,

    Completed installation of HTPC in Coolermaster ATC-600. Full and gory details on HTPC links from my HT website.

    It's an excellent, if pricey, case!

    I'm very pleased with the transformation - though I see the new 610 is coming :(:rolleyes::mad:

    Coollermaster ATC-600, cheapest I could find was from Scan

    Be very careful with the aluminum screw threads, they are very weak. I have already had 1 of these cases replaced because of it.

    Jeff,

    Yes, came across that. The smaller screws fixing the horizontal support member and drive bays to the chassis are indeed fiddly and delicate.

    The right tools and some common sense go a long way towards eliminating problems.

    Have a look at the link to the 610 in my original post - looks like they're coming out with a black version, though I don't know when.
