Build Description

This is my home server. I bought the Silverstone Grandia GD09B case because it can fit a full-size video card, an ATX motherboard, full size PSU, and has reasonable accomodation for storage. Aesthetically it fits in the same space as an AV receiver, and is styled like it belongs next to one.

Favorite Feature

Aesthetics - it looks good in a home theater center.
