HTPC's are becoming more popular, and components designed for the specific purpose of usage in a home theater are increasing. Because of this increase in demand for HTPC's we are also seeing a return of "desktop" style cases in the form of HTPC cases. Amongst the myriad of companies offering "HTPC" cases is Thermaltake. Thermaltake has just recently entered two products into the HTPC market, the Mystic and the Tenor. The latter is the one we will be examining today.

Stated clearly on the A-Top Technology website is "A-Top will NOT provide any tech. support or warranty for their customers."
