[mythtv-users] call for people with experience with Silverstone HTPC cases

I have a LaScala LC-01 with an Athlon XP 2700+ and a GeForceMX 4000. 
OEM heatsink and fan along with fan in PSU.  I had a 80 mm fan hooked
to a resistor (a zalman fan) but disconnected it because it made too
much noise.  No problems with heat.  I bought this case before LaScala
sold so many different models.  I wasn't too impressed with the case
build, considering it was $150.  Nothing close to the fit and finish
of my Antec case.  But, you seem to pay a higher price for htpc form
factor cases.  In closing, it isn't a terrible case and it is
relatively inexpensive compared to some of the Ahanix models.
