OrigenAE X10 HTPC Case

Specification

Specification

"The X10 is in essence the X11's little sister. Given its pedigree, it has all of the style and the presence of its big brother but boasts a profile 20mm lower than that of its counterpart. However, this feisty temptress also has a full aluminium construct for efficient heat dispersion and sound damping, plus excellent hardware capabilities. The X10 enclosure is definitely for the discerning user who wants quality and power all contained within one aesthetically pleasing unit."

- 2 x 60mm exhaust fan
- Front usb, audio and firewire ports
- Matched cd/dvd drive bezel

I was surprised to see that the only cooling on the X10 was in the form of 2x60mm fans. This could possibly cause some heat issues on systems that run very hot (P4 for example). Many HTPC cases I've seen have 1x120mm fans in addition to 2x60mm fans - it would have been nice if OrigenAE could have incorporated this.
