DIY HD HTPC Extravaganza - Part 1: The Cases

3R Systems HT-1100 Features Lots Of Room Inside

The HT-1100 from 3R systems is an all-aluminium case that features a two-line multimedia front panel vacuum fluorescent display (VFD), which is actually Soundgraph's iMon VFD.

The retail package also includes an infrared (IR) remote control and compatible software, which manages the HTPC's multimedia functions. Its dimensions make this case completely compatible with typical high fidelity rack-mount gear, but also makes it pretty large.
