> Case Suitable To Go Inside a Cupbaord, Cooling Issue
Posted: Mar 4 2011, 03:40 AM

Hi All

I am wanting to install a HTPC in our kitched/dining room and if possible I would like to store the HTPC inside a kitchen cupboard. Now I realise that there could be cooling issues with doing this so my questions are:-

1) Is this at all possible or should I give up on the idea?

2) If it is possible can anyone recommend a suitable HTPC or suitable components/cases to build a HTPC?

Your advice would be appreciated.

Yeah you can do it and yeah you may have issues with cooling if it's a small, enclosed space. Most microATX cases should fit, although you may want to go with miniITX. As for cooling it's pretty much impossible to work around that unless you use a lower TDP CPU or cut holes somewhere.
