HTPC Case Choice
At Media Master HTPC we are constantly looking out for the best HTPC components, small and quiet cases are important considerations when designing a system for use in the living room environment. 

We believe our product range offers a wide variety of computer types which all share the same theme of keeping things as small as possible without compromising on performance whilst keeping system noise to quiet or even silent levels.
