Hi, Looking at a new case for HTPC $'s (aren't we all?)...after a desktop style config to fit into a low, long Home Ent. unit.  Unable to decide between the Coolermaster Elite 360 and a Raidmax Panther Mini Tower...anybody have experiences with building either one? I'll be putting a PSU in, PC will be wirelessly networked, Asus K8N-E delux mobo, 500gb sata HDD, Gigabyte 6600 AGP card, wireless keyboard (with scrollball).
Any suggestions welcome, Panther is cheap +++ and includes 2x80 +2x60mm case fans (? noisy) but I've built with Coolermaster cases before...they are good cases...thanks.

What are those retailing for? I've only ever used Silverstone HTPC cases - best bang for buck imo

Raidmax $102, Coolermaster $139, both delivered. Yeah, I like the look of the Silverstone LC17's but we're in the middle of house renos, I can't afford ANYTHING right now...the Raidmax will be an argument, the Silverstone would be divorce...
