Silverstone La Scala SST LC02B black HTPC Case Review


The introduction ...

A beautiful HiFi PC in the living room was unthinkable a few years ago, because there were no beautiful
PC enclosures available for this matter. Thus it was necessary to completely build these PC cases for the living room, like the first J-Box HowTo from the year 2000 shows.
The times have changed and in the meanwhile there are dozens Home Theater PC enclosures - briefly HTPC - in all sorts of colors, styles and price ranges. But one problem has still not changed and that is the balancing act of the best case size. Because many users upgrading their gaming PCs several times a year and thus have a lot of hardware left for living room PCs. So the enclosure should have the right size for an ATX or MicroATX motherboard, but on the other hand it should not be too big for a HiFi rack.
Silverstone try to reach this goal with their La Scala SST-LC02B.
