The case has around 82mm of height clearance each side, unfortunately this means that a 3.5" HDD will not fit as they are 102mm in width.@K888D Hi I would be interested in a prototype also I have a LZ7 that I have modded a little, you posted on TEK Everythings recent video you would like a picture of the build. My avatar is a picture of it. I would love the HT5 to be able to support 3.5" drives (x2) as a alternative to say side fans, I made extra mounting slots for 2.5" and M.2 in the LZ7 by using 3M velcro strips on the side of the PSU. and would love to replace my silverstone HTPC which has 2.5"x2 3.5"x2 and M.2x2 drives.
Got the all black prototype heading my way, so excited to build in it for my living room gaming/media pc!I am definitely eyeing the all-black one for my new HTPC. Looking good!
Is it pretty much confirmed that there will be no front or side I/O ports? Not that it's going to stop me from purchasing. I'll use a USB hub and USB sound card if I have to. Also, I hope that the power led will be subdued enough as to not be a nuisance in a dark room
