HTPCs (Home Theater PCs) are targeted to users that want a computer connected to their home theater system to watch movies and videos, listen to songs, and play games. Since this kind of computer will usually be physically installed together with your home theater equipment, HTPC cases usually have the same size and color of home theater receivers, so your computer will look like standard home theater equipment.

The latest HTPC case from Silverstone is the Grandia GD06, which features two hot-swap hard drive bays and an aluminum front door. The rest of the case is made in steel, and the panel behind the front door is made of plastic. Let’s check it out.

The GD06 has one 120 mm fan on its left side panel and two 120 mm fans on its right side panel, all featuring air filters. The three fans blow air inside the case, making this case a positive air pressure model. This means that there is more forced air entering the case than exiting it. These fans spin at 1,200 rpm, have a 20 dBA noise level, and have a three-pin power connector, meaning that you can install them directly on the motherboard in order to monitor their speed. The left fan can be replaced with an 80 mm model.
