Thermaltake Mozart HTPC Case
February 17, 2006

Thermaltake is at the top of the list for many computer enthusiasts when it comes to choosing a new computer case. They're tower and mid-tower designs offer stylish designs, convenient installation features, excellent cooling, and a wide range of prices. Towers may work well for the typical workstation or gaming PC, but HTPCs have different requirements that Thermaltake seems ready to tackle with their line of desktop format, HTPC oriented cases.


Thermaltake now offers four desktop style cases intended for HTPC applications, including the Mystic, Tenor, Bach, and Mozart. All provide a slightly different style to fit into a variety of home theater settings, and each is built off the basics that Thermaltake has become known for. The Mozart (model VC4000SNS) is pictured in the promotional image above, and will be the Thermaltake HTPC case of interest in this review.

Before jumping into the heart of the review, let's take a look at some of the published data on Thermaltake Mozart HTPC Case.
