This case makes a perfect LinuxMCE solution! I am using a Pentium 4 processor, an Intel 850E Chipset, and 250GB HDD. My CPU is passively cooled so NO NOISE. If you are planning on buying a heat sink and fan for your CPU, please make sure that it will fit a desktop case. Also, a specialized cooling fan for your GPU is almost out of the question due to the case's height dimensions. The case is long and so if you have an enclosed home entertainment stand then it may not fit. Finally, the 380w PSU fails to meet the power requirements of the latest video cards. If your video card is a power hog then you can always replace the PSU for another full ATX PSU. The case is made to fit microATX motherboards.

Overall, the case provides easy installation of components, fully compartmentalized for cooling, and is quiet.
